The Orchard: (After Chekhov) (Paperback)

Not available


Sarena Parmar's The Orchard (After Chekhov) is an adaptation of Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, told through the eyes of a Sikh farming family in the Okanagan Valley, Canada. Set in 1967, the play offers a fresh perspective on our history, and a subversive look at ethnicity within the classical western canon.

Still grieving the loss of her youngest son, the matriarch of the Basran family returns home after five years abroad in India. But all is not well; the family she left behind is unravelling and their orchard has fallen into foreclosure. With the bank calling and relations strained, will the Basrans be able to save their beloved orchard in time?

Inspired by the playwright's own childhood, The Orchard (After Chekhov) is a bold new adaptation that confronts life, loss, and the immigrant experience with bravery and beauty.
