The Free State archiveA South African response to Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard which relocates the action from turn-of-the-century Russia to present day democratic South Africa in an enchanting and relevant new play, spiced with delicate humour and romance. The play looks at the lives of whites and blacks shifted irrevocable by their first democratic elections. With Mandela's victory, optimism and euphoria affects everyone and his spirit of reconciliation thrills the world. Dedicating her play to Mandela, Suzman ingeniously brings Chekhov's masterpiece right up to date in this powerful thought-provoking adaptation. Barclays Stage Partners
