The Cherry Orchard (Paperback)

The Cherry Orchard Cover Image
By Anton Chekhov, Stephen Karam (Adapted by)


A fresh take on a classic by the Tony Award-winning playwright of The Humans

Stephen Karam is known for his dedication to exploring the idiosyncrasies of human speech and behavior--the subtleties, the depth, and the wonderfully awkward minutiae. With this new adaptation of The Cherry Orchard, Chekhov's canonical masterpiece about a family on the brink of bankruptcy, Karam's fluid style pairs harmoniously with the work of the master playwright.

Stephen Karam is the author of two plays that were named finalists for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama: The Humans in 2016 and Sons of the Prophet in 2012. The Humans won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Play. His other work includes the play Speech & Debate and a film adaptation of Chekhov's The Seagull for Sony Pictures Classics.
