The Cherry Orchard
A.R.T. Season
January 21, 1994

Madame Ranevskaya is summoned from Paris to her girlhood home to deal with the insurmountable debts incurred on her estate.  Lopakhin, a successful businessman and the son of a serf who has worked for her family urges her to sell it. Despite her efforts to prevent it, the cherry orchard is put up for auction, and Lopakhin buys it.  Devastated, all are forced to leave the estate except the old servant Firs, who is accidentally left behind.  The final sound of the play is the sound of an axe felling the old trees to make room for summer cottages.
