For Strange Sun Theater's Fall 2016 season, Sean mounted 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, and being forced to make plans for their uncertain future. An orginial cast of 13 was paired down to 7.
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.
