Odeon set for Cherry

Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, in a version by Andrew Upton, with Zoë Wanamaker as Ranyevskaya, is the latest in the series of National Theatre Live broadcasts being screened at Blackpool Odeon tonight.

Set at the very start of the twentieth century, The Cherry Orchard captures a poignant moment in Russia’s history as the country rolls inexorably towards 1917.

The production stars Zoë Wanamaker together with Claudie Blakley, Mark Bonnar, Pip Carter, Kenneth Cranham, Gerald Kyd, James Laurenson, Tim McMullan, Charity Wakefield and Sarah Woodward..

National Theatre Live performances are filmed live in high definition and broadcast via satellite to almost 400 cinemas around the world.

The Cherry Orchard screening starts at 7pm and runs three hours, including pre-show and interval.
