International award-winning physical theatre company from South Korea put their own avant-garde stamp on Chekhov's classic.

Hopelessly in debt, the Gayev family are forced to sell their estate, and see their beloved cherry orchard cut down. Visual and compelling 21st-century take on the story of how shifts in society deeply affect us all, and what happens to those who cannot keep pace with change. An entertaining and thought-provoking classic story that is still strikingly relevant today.

This tragicomedy brought to life through physical performance received universal acclaim during its two year run in Korea. Winner of two Best Play awards and also the 2014 Busan International Theatre Festival's most prestigious award, Best New Play.
