WORLD PREMIERE! It’s Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard — transformed into the tale of a Punjabi-Sikh family fighting to hold onto their Okanagan Valley orchard. Based on Sarena Parmar’s own childhood in British Columbia, this fresh adaptation confronts life, loss and the Canadian immigrant experience with both bravery and beauty.
