 The Orchard 

For Strange Sun Theater's Fall 2016 season, Sean helmed a new version of Anton Chekhov's classic The Cherry Orchard.

The Orchard, after Chekhov is the synthesized story of Chekhov's; using multiple translations Sean rewrote Chekhov's story of a family clinging to the past and their familial home, being forced to make plans for their uncertain future. An Chekhov's orginial cast of 13 was paired down to 7 in this modern stripped down re-telling.

Whereas the final moments of Chekhov's are underscored by the resonate blows of an axe felling the eponymous Cherry Trees, The Orchard, after Chekhov inflates a tarp that as it fills with air, swallows the stage.
