<b><i>The Cherry Orchard</b></i>  A Comedy in Four Acts  by Anton Chekhov Burlington Vermont

How TMM approaches The Cherry Orchard.
Chekhov completed The Cherry Orchard, his last play, in 1904; he died in 1905. In the early 20th century, The Moscow Art Theatre played it as a tragedy, but Chekhov subtitled it: A Comedy in four acts. So comedy it will be for TMM - not a farce, a comedy. There is one death on stage, but in May 2011 the audience will wotness a lively, extremely energetic, light, witty, funny play. Its after taste is another matter. Comedy? Tragedy? You decide. Let's just say it's an orchard, not a bowl of cherries.
Working from a completely new translation of The Cherry Orchard.
In May TMM presents Chekhov's classic in a completely new translation by Elaine Herman. This translation sticks as close as possible to Chekhov's writing style taking into account the complexity of the Russian language and the huge distance between it and the English language. Our production presents a piece of the Russian soul.
