Critically acclaimed as a masterpiece, The Cherry Orchard is Russian playwright Anton Chekhov's last play. Both poignant and comic, it tells the tale of an aristocratic family’s struggles as they face dramatic change—bankruptcy and the loss of their country estate.

"Studying at the CSUB Theatre Department allowed me to experiment with projects and roles that shaped the actor I am today. They gave me space and tools to create art —regardless of size and scope — always encouraging creativity, spontaneity and hard work. I was lucky to have what I did in the theatre program at CSUB and continually draw on my time there for inspiration."
Jeff Lepine, Artistic Director of The Peoples Improv Theater, NYC
