Overview The family sits motionless center stage. Lopakhin stamps on money lining the floor. Trofimov talks of the future to the blazing sky. A pile of window frames is both the mementos of the sold-off house and also the wreckage of a society’s vision. In this version of Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard the staging is highly symbolic in its use of design and lighting, and also strikingly features the refrain of a waltz. Premiered in 2007, it was revived at the Meyerhold Centre in Moscow in 2011 as Chiten’s first production in Russia. Following its success there, Chiten has taken work on tour to Russia every year since.
