Friday October 5 Theatre Workshop of Nantucket presents: 9

The Cherry Orchard

7:30pm Methodist Church, downstairs at 2 Centre St. Tickets $25, available at Gregory Stroud’s new translation and adaptation of Chekhov’s Cherry Orchard. The play, set in the 1970’s summer colony of Nantucket, follows the rise and fall of the summer season with the Reynals, and a colorful variety of hangers-on, as they come to terms with the impending loss of their family summer “cottage.” The Theatre Workshop production re-imagines Chekhov’s classic comedy as a reckoning between island natives and the seasonal upper-class, between love and the burdens of the past, all in Lily Pulitzer, vintage Yves Saint Laurent, and Madras pants. Stroud’s new adaptation is timely, faithful, heartfelt, and wickedly funny. It is a love letter for a generation which came of age in the 1970s and a parable of sustainability for their children. Directed by Anne Breeding and Gregory Stroud, The Cherry Orchard is the quintessential island story. Nantucket Arts Council’s 2012 ARTS FESTIVAL
