باغ آلبالو آخرین اثر داستان نویس شهیر روس آنتوان چخوف است که به عنوان تئاتری شعرگونه توصیف شده است. شعری در مورد زندگی و مرگ، تحول و تغییر. باغ آلبالو کمدی زندگی است. روش کارگردانی سهیل پارسا نگاه مینیمالیستی تازه ای به این شاهکار کلاسیک می اندازد که به کاوش ظرفیت بشر در خودتخریبی و خودفریبی، معمای زندگی، از دست رفتن ارزش ها و تنهایی بشر می پردازد
