Miracle Theatre Company - The Cherry Orchard
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 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?
Miracle’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.

In summer, Miracle pops-up in unexpected places: on beaches and cliff tops and in amphitheatres, gardens, castles. The rest of the year, its fine-tuned flexibility enables it to adapt to venues of all shapes and sizes – from village halls to grand theatres!
Miracle’s projects are collaborative, bringing together artists, actors, musicians, writers and makers from around Cornwall to create work with a unique offbeat style, a joyful use of language and an immediate visual appeal. It skilfully integrates the very latest technology with traditional storytelling to bring together audiences of all ages across the South West and beyond.
