The Berkeley Street Theatre – Upstairs Theatre

Life in The Cherry Orchard is threatened as Russia teeters on the brink of enormous change. Yet there is singing and dancing, magic tricks and pratfalls as the lives of its thirteen characters slip between tragedy and farce, illusion and reality. And all the while they are swept along to the steady thrum of time passing.   (
