Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory

SUMMARY

For their second production this season, Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory presents Chekhov’s final tragi-comic masterpiece.

The charming but feckless Madame Ranevskaya returns home to Russia after five years in Paris with her lover to face looming bankruptcy. Can she conceive of her magnificent cherry orchard being sold to save her whole estate, or will she ignore all advice and court disaster for herself and her whole family?

The cast includes Julia Hills (Playing Goneril in King Lear and also played Rona in the hit TV sitcom 2point4 Children) as Ranevskaya; and Simon Armstrong (Kent in King Lear who starred as Uncle Vanya and as Alceste in the SATTF/Bristol Old Vic Misanthrope) as the brash entrepreneur, Lopakhin.

This will be Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory’s third excursion into Chekhov, following its 2005 Three Sisters, and the 2009 SATTF/Bristol Old Vic co-prodution of Uncle Vanya.

Admission: £20(£12)
