Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard at Goodman Theatre

April 1 - April 30, 2023 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 2 hours and 40 minutes including one intermission.


A family verges on bankruptcy while their country stands on the brink of revolution.

Endings and beginnings. Bittersweet departures. The comedy of life. When Madame Ranevskaya returns to her heavily-mortgaged estate on the eve of its auction, the aristocratic widow finds that the fate of much more than her beloved orchard hangs in the balance. Anton Chekhov’s canonical masterpiece is an exploration of loss, love and how to live in a society that’s changing fast. Following his critically-acclaimed productions of Three Sisters, The Seagull and Uncle Vanya, director Robert Falls takes on the last of Chekhov’s four major plays.

Recommended for ages 14 and up.
