Chekhov’s masterful last play, The Cherry Orchard, is a work of timeless, bittersweet beauty about the fading fortunes of an aristocratic Russian family and their struggle to maintain their status in a changing world. Alternately touching and farcical, this subtle, intelligent play stars the incomparable Marsha Mason.

This is an LA Theatre Works full-cast performance starring Marsha Mason as Madame Lyubov Andreyevna Ranyevskaya, Hector Elizondo as Leonid Andreyevich Gayev, Michael Cristofer as Yermolay Alekseyevich Lopakhin,  Jennifer Tilly as Dunyasha (Avdotya Fyodorovna), Joey Slotnick as Semyon Panteleyevich Yepikhodov, Christy Keefe as Anya Ranyevskaya, Amy Pietz as Varya Ranyevskaya, Jordan Baker as Charlotta Ivanovna, Jeffrey Jones as Boris Borisovich Semyonov-Pischick, Charles Durning as Feers, John Chardiet as Yasha, Tim DeKay as Pyotr Sergeyevich Trofimov, and John Chardiet as Passerby. Translated and adapted by Frank Dwyer and Nicholas Saunders. Directed by Rosalind Ayres and recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.

About the Author

Anton Chekhov (1860–1904), the author of hundreds of short stories and several plays, is regarded by many as both the greatest Russian storyteller and the father of modern drama. He described the Russian life of his time using a deceptively simple technique devoid of obtrusive literary devices, thereby becoming the prominent representative of the late nineteenth-century Russian realist school. His early stream-of-consciousness style strongly influenced the literary world, including writers such as James Joyce.
