What People are Saying About This

James Parer

"Carnicke's Cherry Orchard is direct, easily accessible to young American students, and mercifully free of all that blather that mucks up so much of the other versions that I know." --(James Parker, Late Professor of Theatre, Virginia Commonwealth University)
