A STUNNING NEW PRODUCTION FROM “ONE OF THE WORLD’S FINEST THEATERMAKERS” (New York Times)

The New York Times recently called Dmitry Krymov “one of the world’s finest theatermakers.” For this new adaptation of The Cherry Orchard, the world-renowned Russian director collaborates with the Wilma’s acclaimed HotHouse Acting Company to reimagine one of theater’s enduring masterworks.

What is it like to lose your home?
The Cherry Orchard
 centers around a Russian family grappling with the potential foreclosure of their estate, and a community in transition as the old makes way for the new. Volleyballs and sunflower seeds fly, while a giant mechanical train station flipboard tells the future … plus more surprises await in Krymov’s inventive re-interpretation.

One family is in danger of losing their home, their comfort, and their power. What comes next … and who will profit?
