The Cherry Orchard is, in essence, a simple story, following the final days in residence at the estate of the perfectly gracious but wildly impractical Madame Ranyevskaia and her family. Wealthy landowners now deeply in debt, these noble gentry have come onto hard times. They try desperately to maintain their aristocratic lifestyle, ignoring an oncoming bourgeois juggernaut. However, the coarse but competent power of an unstoppable new social order overtakes the fading memories of past glory, leaving all to embrace an unexpected future, whether they like it or not.
