An old starship travels through space, almost at the speed of light, searching for a home billions of miles from earth.

Like their ancestors before them, the crew were born on this ship, this voyage is all they've ever known. And then-

A planet is spotted

In a habitable zone!

Imagine what we could do with the place

It's a miracle

But not everyone wants to see it.

Captain Ramesh is adamant that they can't leave- but the downdeckers are getting restless-something has to change. Will they leap into a new future, or stay stuck on this journey forever?

Vinay Patel reimagines Chekhov's bittersweet play for 2022 and beyond, in a world premiere production directed by James Macdonald.

A The Yard Theatre, ETT and HOME co-production, co-commissioned by The Yard Theatre and ETT, playing at The Yard Theatre, London from 5 September - 22 October and HOME, Manchester from 2 - 19 November 2022.

Vinay Patel, playwright says: "I adore these actors. They're sharp, open-hearted and effortlessly funny - everything you need to make The Cherry Orchard sing and I reckon Chekhov would be delighted. Working on a sci-fi production with a large cast of South Asian heritage is a proper dreamland, but the most exciting aspect of it for me is how that heritage is not a point of difference on our spaceship. They are simply complex people (especially the ones that are robots)".
