CLASSIC THE CHERRY ORCHARD Citizens’ Theatre, Glasgow, until Sat 30 Mar 0...

Funny. Sad? Georgina Hale

All of us like to think that we’re flexible and able to change with the world. But are we? Like children, we’re ultimately enamoured of routine, a place to retreat to, where our own gas fire, telly programmes and the food of our liking awaits. Chekhov’s classic tragi-comedy examines the trauma of losing the place we call home.

In it, Madame Ranevsky (Georgina Hale) returns to Russia, daughter (Sarah Walton) in tow, after a dodgy relationship experience. Her spendthrift lifestyle has left her country estate with the orchard of the title impoverished, and she relies upon brother Gaev (Simon Dutton) to find a solution that avoids the sale of their home suggested by nouveau riche former serf Lopakhin (Tam Dean Burn).

Gaev, a sympathetic wally frequently yellow-carded for vacuous pomposity, is no good to man or beast, and at the end of the summer the estate is inevitably snapped up by Lopakhin for redevelopment. Will the latter’s largely unstated interest in Ranevsky’s adopted daughter Varia (Lucy Russell) come to fruition? Will the cherry orchard do likewise? And what of the many servants and employees of the estate?

Phillip Prowse’s production takes place under a pretty sea of cherry blossoms, which flutter to the ground, carpeting it in whiteness as the action proceeds. A big cast plays up the light satirical comedy of the piece to good effect, though whether the campiness of all this ultimately detracts a little from the final poignancy is a moot point.

For all that, Burn’s role avoids the class prejudice that is associated with his character in traditional British productions. This Lopakhin is not completely sympathetic, but no monster; just a guy on the up doing what he has to. There are also some nice turns from the supporting cast, notably John Jack as a surly smart arse servant engaged in a casual, callous dalliance with fellow domestic Dunyasha (Debra Free) and Leonard Kavanagh as an aged trusty retainer whose character accumulates a pathos which is a little lacking in the main characters. It’s not as moving as you might expect, but it’s fun. (Steve Cramer)
