“Renato is a superlative saxophonist with a passionate and poetic soul. He has all the virtues – a beautiful sense of time and pacing and a technique which effortlessly projects his brilliantly flowing ideas.” (Ian Carr, Jazz writer)

…When you hear it on the subtly-simmering ‘For Heaven’s Sake’ you know you’re in the presence of a master improviser.” (Brian Blain, Jazz UK)

Miracle Theatre’s The Cherry Orchard

Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 August

Tregrehan Gardens – 7.30pm

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?

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.

Audiences of all ages can enjoy the full ‘open air theatre experience’, by bringing along cushions and blankets along with a well-stocked picnic or sample the delicious food and drinks provided onsite. Prepare for all weathers and arrive early for a special night of theatre performed under the stars!

Licensed bar + refreshments available and Keep Cornwall Fed will be offering hot food – Paella, Beef Chilli & Vegetable Chilli before the play and during the interval.
