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 be aware that Bestival is taking place at Lulworth Castle this weekend, therefore there are a few road diversions and temporoary one-way systems around Lulworth to be aware of. Traffic shouldn't really be affected on the main roads by Saturday but we strongly advise heading to Wareham, on the A351, and then down to Kimmeridge, rather than going over the firing ranges.
