Lyuba, Anya and Varya are the protagonists of this Cherry Orchard, where the limited role of females in society has a major impact on the fate of the family. With a history of secret affairs, irresponsibility and the tragic death of a 7-yr-old boy, what can the next generation do to save the family?
We live in a multi-racial society. We live off the labour of an immigrant population. We stand in the shadow of the 2008 credit crunch. We stand in the bloody tracks of an emancipated population.
What was this country? Was it great? Is there a revolution coming for us?
