The Cherry Orchard - from the inside

The Cherry Orchard has begun at Southbank Theatre, with the previews now underway and Opening Night coming up this Thursday.

In the lead up to the first preview on Saturday, we heard a whisper that actor David Paterson had taken a series of beautiful, candid photographs of his fellow cast members during their rehearsal period at MTC HQ. As you can imagine, we were keen to take a peek! David and the cast have very kindly allowed us to share them with you; you can view a selection by clicking the image gallery on the right. As you’ll see they’re quite different to our usual rehearsal pictures; there’s a very intimate quality, don’t you think?
