Show information

Trailblazing director Katie Mitchell returns to the Young Vic with her signature lyricism to direct Anton Chekhov’s last and greatest play The Cherry Orchard.

Vigorous and profound, this new version by Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens (A Doll’s House, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time), is an anguished and heartbreaking love letter to a society in violent transition.
