Accidental Repertory Theater, Inc. Presents
Adams Apples
Thursday, May 05, 2011 through Sunday, June 05, 2011

Inspired by Chekhov’s "The Cherry Orchard," "Adams’ Apples," written and directed by John Strasberg, tells the story of Elizabeth Adams, her daughters, and their circle, as economic forces and the march of progress conspire to threaten their way of life.

Length: 2 hrs 15 mins
Intermission: Yes
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

Around the beginning of the 20th Century, Chekhov wrote "The Cherry Orchard," a play about people living through the unrest and turmoil that preceded the Russian revolution. In contrast, "Adams' Apples" takes place in the United States today, a little over 100 years later. "Adams' Apples," inspired by "The Cherry Orchard," honors Chekhov's spirit of writing about contemporary life, and people in the world around him. The Adams, and the people around them, are characters of today; with the attitudes, beliefs, and problems, that affect us all -- problems of our economy, the environment, questions about what we mean by success and freedom and whether they are more than material success, greed, and license. The times change, but the questions are the same. What is success? What rules the world, power or love? Can they co-exist in a healthy way? In "Adams' Apples" every character wants love, and is afraid of not finding it. Audiences familiar with "The Cherry Orchard" will recognize the roots of "Adams' Apples" as they become involved in the lives and problems of our contemporary characters. And, those who aren't familiar with "The Cherry Orchard" will encounter a play filled with humor, truth, and the comedy and tragedy that make our lives what they are.
