Niccolo Curradi will be performing in The Cherry Orchard at the New Wimbledon Studios. PK Productions (Up From Paradise, Doctor Selavy’s Magic Theatre, Celebrating Silverman, Halbwelt Kultur) return to New Wimbledon Studio with a radical new adaptation of Antony Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard from 4-8 November.
This new adaptation by director Patrick Kennedy sets the action in Britain, 1976. Ruby Cavendish arrives back at the dilapidated family estate searching for sanctuary away from an unsuccessful love affair in tourist hotspot Valletta only to face the prospect of losing it all due to impending bankruptcy.
But good fortune is around the corner. The family’s grocer’s son, Lyle Morris, now a successful property developer in the burgeoning property market, has a crafty plan to rescue the family’s fortunes. Can Ruby embrace the march of change, or is the nostalgia of the prosperous past too strong?
Featuring music and choreography from PK Productions associate choreographer Alyssa Noble, The Cherry Orchard promises to be one of the company’s most exciting and daring endeavours to date.
