Starting Tuesday, January 31, ACT Theatre and The Seagull Project will present one of Anton Chekhov‘s most celebrated plays, The Cherry OrchardJohn Langs directs the Russian classic, which runs through February 19. From ACT Theatre:

The Cherry Orchard is the final play written by Russia’s most enduring playwright, Anton Chekhov. Written when Russia was on the verge of an earth-shattering revolution and Chekhov himself was in the grips of tuberculosis, The Cherry Orchard is an unflinching laugh in the face of mortality. […]

Seagull Project Artistic Director Gavin Reub describes it like this: “People know The Cherry Orchard. They know the axes, the selling of the house, the breaking of the string. People know The Cherry Orchard, but do they know the ghosts that live in the dead forest? The echoes of lost children? The stink of Paris left behind, the beauty of a bookcase, and the tortures of a party beyond, behind, and living in the drunken stupor of your expectations? People know The Cherry Orchard. Soon we can all see just how much we can know.”

The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov
