The plot of the play revolves around an aristocratic Russian lady and her family. They come back to their family state just before the estate is auctioned to pay the mortgage. The family estate also includes a huge and very popular Cherry Orchard.[ The family wants to save the estate and they do have some options before them, but they do not do anything. Eventually, the estate is sold to the son of a former serf. When the family leaves the estate, the cherry orchard is being cut down. Cultural futility is the central theme of the play. Aristocracy attempts vainly to maintain its status and the bourgeoisie continue to find meanings in its newfound materialism and richness.
