adapted by Brendan Murray
from Anton Chekhov
presented by DogOrange

Jack Studio Associate Company DogOrange presents Chekhov’s final masterpiece, The Cherry Orchard, in a new version by Writers’ Guild award-winning playwright Brendan Murray.

Madame Ranyevskaya returns to save the family estate she has loved throughout her life but is unable to accept help; as though to face the realities of the present would betray her longing for the past. Through inaction, she risks losing the thing she holds most precious, her Cherry Orchard.

'The whole orchard dressed in white. Do you remember, Lyuba? The long avenue – how it stretches like a ribbon; how it shines on moonlit nights…You haven’t forgotten, have you?'

DogOrange returns to the tragi-comedy of Chekhov following the success of their adaptation of Ward No. 6, which garnered a Stage Award Nomination for Best Ensemble and Time Out Critic’s Choice (“an imaginative and dynamic production, realised with passion and wit”). The Cherry Orchard is DogOrange’s fourth production at the Jack and follows their previous sell out shows A Scent of Flowers, A Woman Alone and Mary Rose. Bringing the company’s trademark imagination and passion to Chekhov’s vivid storytelling, the production will feature live music and will be directed by Artistic Director Matthew Parker.

DogOrange: Imaginative retellings of classic stories and flights of fancy.
