Miracle Theatre: The Cherry Orchard

This summer, Miracle Theatre 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 rumblings 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?

A once-wealthy family faces ruin as society teeters on the brink of cataclysmic change...

This summer, Miracle Theatre 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 rumblings 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 the 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.

Cornwall's award winning Miracle Theatre has developed a strong reputation for producing entertaining and dynamic adaptations of classic plays. Go and see for yourself this summer! Recommended 7+

Please note that this is an open air performance. Bring a cushion or rug to sit on, pack a picnic and wear warm/weatherproof clothing. Guide dogs only please.Running time: 2 hours plus interval approx.

Artsreach Dorset

Artsreach is a registered charity that brings high quality performances of live theatre, music, dance and family shows to the heart of rural communities across Dorset.

Artsreach is dedicated to providing people in rural areas with the opportunity to choose and promote professional arts events in their local venue.

Our performance programme runs through a network of around 50 volunteer promoting groups and together we organise over 140 high quality professional events every year, usually in village halls, right across rural Dorset.

Not only do our events provide the opportunity to enjoy high quality arts on your doorstep, they are also a great social occasion!

The income generated from audience members purchasing tickets plays a vital role in supporting both Artsreach as a scheme, and the community venues in which events take place, as event box offices are split between both parties.

We are an Artsmark Supporter and Arts Award Partner - do get in touch to find out how we can work together!
