BBC Full Cast Dramatization
Chekhov's masterful last play, a work of timeless, bittersweet beauty about the fading fortunes of an aristocratic Russian family and their struggle to maintain their status in a changing world. In this eulogy for a disappearing way of life, the magnificent cherry orchard of the Ranevskaya family symbolizes these changes – as the fortunes dwindle, the orchard disappears.
