In a version by Tom Murphy

Times are changing.
An old way of life is dying out.
A family faces extinction.
A country prepares for revolution.
And the cherry orchard? What will become of it?
Bringing together one of the world’s great classic plays with one of Ireland’s greatest writers, Druid presents Tom Murphy’s version of Chekhov’s masterpiece.
Directed by Garry Hynes, with the acclaimed creative team behind DruidShakespeare, this production will feature a large company of actors, starring Derbhle Crotty alongside Rachel Feeney and other leading members of the Druid Ensemble. Druid’s production of The Cherry Orchard, a play about land, legacy, and the struggle between tradition and change, will be the first major production of Tom Murphy’s work since his death in 2018.
