THE CHERRY ORCHARD by Anton Chekhov / April 6-23, 2023

Directed by Randolph Curtis Rand

Quirky Dramedy ▪ Revolutionary

It’s workers vs. landlords in this brutally funny classic play. The old ways are dying, and one family is caught in the middle. The socio-economic divide is on the precipice, and we will laugh and cry when it all comes tumbling down.
