A post-documentary performance based on Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard.

In his final, heavily symbolic play The Cherry Orchard (1903), Anton Chekhov describes the journey of an early 20th-century family, who, incapable of grasping the socio-economic shifts of their time, are forced to auction off the ancestral estate. Drawing on his background with documentary theatre, Prodromos Tsinikoris is inspired by the classic Chekhovian play in an attempt to imagine a sequel set in contemporary times.

How do Chekhov’s characters cope with the trauma of loss? How can they go on with their lives after they are displaced from the titular cherry orchard? What kind of new beginning are they looking forward to? If The Cherry Orchard anticipated the Russian revolution, what are the alternatives entertained by the play’s characters on the morning after, when the cornerstones of private, social and economic life have been rocked to their foundations?
