PREVIEW – The Cherry Orchard, Lyceum Theatre, 16 April – 8 May

The Cherry Orchard

The Cherry Orchard

More family feuds and fortunes at The Lyceum Theatre, with The Cherry Orchard, the last show in their varied and – gasmasks notwithstanding – excellent 2009/10 season.

John Byrne adapts Chekhov’s original tale, transferring the action from turn of the century Russia to 1970s Scotland. Here, the Ramsay-Mackays find their well of past glories running dry, with their grand old estate in the northeast all that remains of their wealth. Ambitious young investor Malky McCracken is keen to make his mark on the world, and the Ramsay-Mackay pile could be just the thing to help him do it…

Tony Cownie directs a 12-strong cast in Byrne’s humourous and moving adaptation of this classic social comedy which will see the curtain fall on the Lyceum’s current season; and hopefully have us eagerly anticipating the 2010/11 programme.

Full details, including prices and tickets, are available at the Lyceum’s website.
