JONATHAN
 LOVEJOY

  The Cherry Orchard

A billionaire's wife has an affair with another woman. A deeply truthful and dramatic account by a woman named Sarah Bishop, who has an intensely sexual love affair with a struggling young female novelist. Her somber, poetic voice is the portrait of a wealthy mother burdened by upper class loneliness and bitter, private desperation.

Crushed by the years of chaos and family discord, Sarah meets beautiful young writer Austria Goldman, whose own desperate and lonely spirit allows the two women a quick and powerful connection. As their love deepens, so to does Sarah's knowledge of Austria's past, as a survivor of a profoundly deviant and abusive relationship with her mother. Their story uncovers a tragic history of mother-daughter violence and perversion, even while a great evil reaches out to them from Austria's past, plunging both women headlong towards a dark and unknown future tragedy.
