The Cherry Orchard
Presented by Melbourne University Chinese Theatre Group with both CHINESE AND ENGLISH SUBTITLES.

An original adaptation of Anton Chekov’s ‘The Cherry Orchard’ set during the Qing Dynasty in China.

In the suburb of Beijing China, there was a tea plantation ran by the Tong family. For over two centuries they supplied Ochannomizu (royal tea) for the royal family and aristocrats. The tea garden thrived for 200 years and there was always a large demand and many customers for their tea.

This all changed when The Boxer Rebellion invaded Beijing. Tong Zhao Di, the owner of the tea plantation, escaped from the war and fled to Shanghai.

Five years later, she returned to Beijing, surrounded by childhood memories. She found the tea garden to be very different from her own memories of this place.

Now, as a middle-aged woman raised in aristocratic family, she has some difficult choices to make.

If you are curious in exploring Chinese Culture and langauge, come and watch the show ! There are great theatre productions, we will not disappoint you !
