20.	EVENT: The Cherry Orchard (TODAY):
The UF School of Theatre and Dance is presenting The Cherry Orchard from
September 28-October 7 in the Constans Theatre next to the Reitz Union.
Student tickets are $9 and are available for purchase at the University
Box Office located in the Constans Theatre from 12:00-5:00pm, M-F or 45
minutes prior to curtain. Call (352) 392-1653 for information.

The Cherry Orchard was Russian playwright Anton Chechov's last play. The
tragi-comedy concerns an aristocratic Russian woman and her family as
they return to the family's estate, with its large and well-known cherry
orchard, just before it is auctioned to pay the mortgage. 
While presented with options to save the estate, the family essentially
does nothing and the play ends with the estate being sold and the family
leaving to the sound of the cherry orchard being cut down. The story
presents themes of cultural futility - both the futility of the
aristocracy to maintain its status and the futility of the bourgeoisie
to find meaning in its newfound materialism. In reflecting the
socio-economic forces at work in Russia at the turn of the 20th
century-including the rise of the middle class after the abolition of
serfdom in the mid-19th century and the sinking of the aristocracy-the
play reflects forces at work around the globe during that period.
