The Cherry Orchard
Hearn Field, Newton Abbot.
This is open air theatre, and it is recomended that you bring something to sit on. As the show will not finish until 9.30pm it may get cold.
Come and enjoy Miracle Theatre's brilliant production in a beautiful setting on the banks of the River Teign.
Make an evening of it arrive early and bring a picnic and Refreshments.
This summer, Miracle unpacks Chekhov’s bittersweet comedy about a once-wealthy family, whose idleness and extravagance have brought them to the brink of bankruptcy.
Obstinate and self-absorbed, they are deaf to the rumbling of change which surrounds them, and unable to accept help when they need it.
Will it take a revolution to destroy their cosy world of privilege and entitlement – or will their own stupidity be enough?
Bill Scott’s new adaptation treads a tragicomic tightrope, bringing out all the humour and pathos of Chekhov’s masterpiece which, more than a century after it was written, is as popular as ever.
