The Cherry Orchard at the Theatre Royal Windsor
There are plenty of Windsor activities to choose from but as the days grow colder, an evening spent wrapped up indoors watching an awe-inspiring production sounds perfect. From 1st October to 13th November, Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard graces the stage for an unforgettable performance with Ian McKellen as part of the cast. Led by acclaimed director Sean Mathias, The Cherry Orchard follows the story of Ranevskaya, a woman returning to her estate after a five-year absence, only to discover that the property, including her beloved cherry orchard, is to be auctioned off to pay the family debts. Described as a mix of drama, comedy and tragedy, this production is one you won’t want to miss, and, for a lucky few, a limited number of on-stage seats will be available to book nearer to the performance dates.
