The action takes place at the country estate of Madame Ranevskaya, an estate famed for its beautiful cherry orchard?and soon to be sold at auction unless the delinquent taxes are paid. As the play begins Madame Ranevskaya has returned from Paris, where she has frittered away the last of her fortune on a cynical young lover, and it is soon apparent that neither she, nor her family and friends, can come to grips with the crushing reality which they must face, or truly fathom the loss which threatens them. Instead they continue to go on as if nothing had changed, and only the rich merchant Lopakhin, the nouveau riche son of a peasant, seems to realize the gravity of the situation. Ironically it is he who bids successfully for the estate and who sets his men to felling the trees as, in the bittersweet finale, Madame Ranevskaya departs again for Paris and the fragile promise of a new and perhaps better life. -- cover

Mystery play : a farce by Jean Claude Van Itallie( Book )
5 editions published between 1960 and 1973 in English and German and held by 174 libraries worldwide
The action is set in the chic living room of a U.S. Senator, during a cocktail party. Present are the Senator, his wife, his schizophrenic bisexual son (played by two actors), a beautiful young woman who may be the son's fiancee, a rather pompous Harvard professor, a quietly efficient butler and a lady mystery writer from next door. It is the mystery writer who holds the key to the bizarre events that follow, as she explains to the actors and the audience what will happen next and what part each character will play in the action about to follow. At the snap of her fingers each sequence begins, as this one is stabbed, that one drinks poisoned coffee, another is blown up-until only the mystery writer and the true culprit remain. But, as the "corpses" keep popping up to add to the conversation, the plot continues to thicken-providing both a delightful metaphysical spoof and a scathing assessment of the social and political hypocrisy of our disjointed times.-- from publisher's website
