Description

This premium cheese platter of self-absorbed characters will have you at once wishing for the glorious blooming days of the 1980s and shrinking at the familiarity of it.

The final play written by Chekhov in his dying days was intended to be his most hilarious comedy. This adaptation takes the story from Russia in the 1880s and replants the orchard to a fictional late 1980s Manjimup in WA. From boom to bust, as the recession hit in 1987 and the America’s Cup put WA on the world stage, Madame Ranyevskya has to sell up and move out.

Venue capacity is small, so audiences get to experience this production across the Sunset Heritage Precinct, from in the family home in the former ballroom, flowing through to a sunset picnic under the gum trees overlooking the Swan river, then onto the lawn for a dress-up party.”
