An interactive and immersive new adaptation of Chekhov’s “The Cherry Orchard” featuring Jessica Hecht and Mikhail Baryshnikov, accessible online worldwide.
The Orchard invites us into the fragile world of a family yearning for connection and struggling with the end of their world as they know it. Threatened with foreclosure and the loss of their beloved orchard, they face unstoppable, destructive forces that dismantle their lives like the breaking of a string.
The Orchard is a hybrid piece of theater and can be seen in person at Baryshnikov Arts Center (NYC) or online, accessible worldwide. The online experience invites audiences on a journey through a beautifully rendered, three dimensional virtual property that has been abandoned and is in foreclosure. There, audiences can explore and discover magical rooms where they uncover echoes of a past life, now lost, including Chekhov’s letters, memories, and ultimately the play, live, in progress at the Baryshnikov Arts Center.
