Miracle Theatre take on this Chekhov classic.
Liubov Ranevskya, a widowed landowner returns home more or less insolvent after five years abroad. Everything appears just as she remembers, but hers is a diminishing world. Her vast and beautiful cherry orchard is soon to be sold off against her mounting debts. The insistent warnings of Lopakhin, a peasant’s son turned wealthy businessman, go unheeded, and more than the family estate is sacrificed as Trofimov, the ‘eternal student’ who hopes to inherit the future, tells her, “The whole of Russia is our orchard”.
