Bartlett 1 Rachel Bartlett Theatre History II Andrea Williams 01 April 2019 The Cherry Orchard If you were to think about Russian theatre during the 19 th century, what comes to mind? One would probably think of Konstantin Stanislavski, best known for developing a technique many method actors use which states that “All of our acts, even the simplest, which are so familiar to us in everyday life, become strained when we appear behind the footlights before a public of a thousand people. That is why it is necessary to correct ourselves and learn how to walk, sit or lie down. It is essential to reeducate ourselves to look and see, on the stage, to listen and to hear” (Wilson and Goldfarb 344). Or, one would think of the Moscow Art Theatre or well-known playwright, Anton Chekhov. Chekhov is known for his plays like Ivanov , the first play that launched his career as a playwright and The Seagull , which was not seen as a success from the first time it was produced and The Cherry Orchard.
