Set in Russia in 1903, The Cherry Orchard tells the story of Madame Ranyevskya, who, after the death of her son five years ago, returns from a period of mourning and recuperation in Paris to find herself faced with a mountain of debts and an impossible decision: lose the family estate or carve up the land for summer holiday cottages. Lopakhin, the wealthy son of their former servant, sees a money-spinning opportunity and urges Ranyevska to consider his scheme for exploiting the Cherry Orchard which means everything to her.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision. Please email our Customer Care team to find out more about your chosen show.
