The Cherry Orchard

A family drama, a comic socioeconomic parable of turn-of-the-century Russia, and a sharp stick in the eye of the bourgeoisie, Anton Chekhov’s final play, The Cherry Orchard, is a rich onion that performers and audiences have peeled for more than a century. The plot centers upon the spoiled Madame Ranevskaya and her family of aristocrats, whose privileged way of life is being challenged by the rise of the middle class and serfdom’s demise. On a trip to save their family estate and titular cherry orchard from the auctioning block, the Ranevskayas struggle to maintain their lofty existence as Chekhov’s prose swings from tragic devastation to laugh-out-loud humor.

Classical Theatre Company

The Classical Theatre Company is the only professional organization in the Houston area that exclusively produces classical dramas all year round. The reasoning behind this choice is simple: the company makes its mission to "boldly re-envision classical drama" by breathing new life into the works of authors such as Shakespeare, Marlow, Ibsen, and Shaw.

During staged readings and full productions, CTC's artistic team always seeks inventive ways to "take old plays and give them a never-before­-seen quality." But despite their conceptual changes—such as setting Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice in a Nazi concentration camp or turning Hamlet into an espionage thriller with ties to whistle-blower Edward Snowden—the company always respects the original playwrights and maintains the integrity of the original prose, often illuminating how many of those "old" plays are now more relevant than ever.
