Kensington Swan season of

The Cherry Orchard

By Anton Chekhov

12 JUN - 26 JUN 2018 — Drama



Auckland Theatre Company


ASB Waterfront Theatre


2 hours and 20 minutes including a 20 minute interval



One of the greatest plays ever written.

Unless this rural landowning family can find the funds, they will lose their beloved country estate and its famous cherry orchard forever. Unable to comprehend the huge social changes on the horizon, they spend one last summer together conjuring memories of the past to mask their fears of the future.

Brought to life by an outstanding ensemble cast, refreshed and revitalised to portray our own social upheavals, The Cherry Orchard is an unmissable comic masterpiece.

“114 years since it was written – the play’s relevance is as sharp as ever.” – Broadway World
