About this product
- Description'Fifteen acres of apple trees in blossom, with a few white hens on the grass, perhaps, and some high white clouds in a blue sky...it's a sight for the gods, it's Shangri-la.' The first London production in over fifty years of Robert Bolt's first West End play, Flowering Cherry. Suburbia, 1957. Jim Cherry sells insurance, but wants to sell apples instead. He dreams of owning an orchard in Somerset and quitting the job he hates. But Cherry is a fantasist and his wife Isobel is at breaking point. As his dream begins to spiral out of control and the gulf between them widens, can she force him to face reality? Hailed at its premiere as the British Death of a Salesman, and from the writer of A Man for All Seasons and the screenplays of Doctor Zhivago and Lawrence of Arabia, Flowering Cherry is the heart-breaking story of a man seduced by his own imagination. This rediscovery marks the first London production since its premiere in 1957, starring Sir Ralph Richardson and Celia Johnson.
