Chekhov’s great, last play comes to the Belvoir mainstage, with Artistic Director Eamon Flack directing for the first time in its 2021 season.

Promising to be one of the highlights of 2021, this is a classic, as funny as it is profound.

A homecoming. A picnic. A party. A leave taking. It’s an uncertain time. Change is coming, you can sniff it in the air. A matriarch returns to a home that’s seen better days – but it still has its orchard. Precious, beautiful, but…in the way.

Chekhov’s final play needs no embellishment to describe our times. What orchards are we cutting down? What orchards are we planting?

With an inspiring cast from today’s Australia, twelve richly talented artists take to the stage led by Pamela Rabe (The Glass Menagerie, TV’s Wentworth), Keith Robinson (Twelfth Night)Nadie Kammallaweera (Counting and Cracking) and Mandela Mathia (Sami in Paradise).

Continuing the incomparable group of artists is Peter Carroll (Life of Galileo, STC’s The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui), Priscilla Doueihy (IFC Films’ Babyteeth), Kirsty Marillier (STC’s Home, I’m Darling), and Lucia Mastrantone (Atlantis), starring alongside Charles Wu (An Enemy of the People), Sarah Meacham (The Wolves)Josh Price (MTC’s An Ideal Husband), and Jack Scott (ABC’s Hardball), with choreography by Elle Evangelista (Force Majeure’s The Last Season).
