About the show

Brave New World Repertory Theatre presents this adaptation of Chekhov's 'The Cherry Orchard' reset in 1870s Virginia in a site-specific staging on Governors Island. More…

'The Plantation' uses Chekhov's classic to examine the tectonic shifts in social status of black and white Americans in the post-Civil War South. The show aims to explore the root causes of some of our country's most pressing social issues with both humor and heart, while telling a story about race in America. Note: Seating is limited. Free tickets are given out on a first-come, first-served basis before each performance. Or you can buy $25 tickets in advance for guaranteed seating.

The New York Times

“A startlingly visceral immersive adaptation…with a humor and humanity that would surely please Chekhov…An examination of race and the legacy of slavery that feels urgently relevant in the wake of the violence last month in Charlottesville, Va...It’s a play whose notions of tradition and inheritance and ownership — of property rights that included the rights to human bodies — have far deeper reverberations than they usually do in ‘The Cherry Orchard.’” Full Review

See it if You would enjoy a cleverly staged adaptation of The Cherry Orchard set in Reconstruction or like political history plays.

Don't see it if You need pure Chekhov or don’t want to think about the socio-political implications of race and class in America.

Also Well staged in the Commander’s House on Governors Island.
