The Grove

Workshop of a new, Latinx adaptation of The Cherry Orchard, exploring gentrification in Los Angeles

April 4 & 5 at 1:30pm

The Cherry Orchard has always been a play about time – how it effects not only people, but also places. In this new adaptation, conceived and directed by Satya Bhabha and written by Francesca Sloan, the central family are Latino landowners in California, struggling with the onslaught of gentrification and urban expansion. The play embraces the eccentric comedy of Chekhov’s text, while also examining the heartbreaking fragility at the heart of these characters – nostalgia isn’t an affliction reserved for the rich and white. Join us for a deeply moving, funny, and unexpected work-in-progress showing of this new adaptation.


A limited number of complimentary tickets are held for all Noise Now events. Please contact Jonathan Muñoz-Proulx, Director of Cultural Programming, at to check availability for this event.
