During 2012 we had great fun hosting a series of outdoor theatre productions in conjunction with The Plough Arts Centre, Torrington. We had wonderful audiences who endured some fairly damp weather so lets hope for a beautiful, dry, quintessentially English summer in 2013 when we can all sit outside on the lawn sipping Pimms (not the children!) and eating delicious picnics with not an umbrella or mackintosh in sight!
We are happy to announce productions which are already confirmed for 2013.
More to be announced soon!

Both deadly serious and seriously funny, Beckett’s timeless masterpiece explores what makes us tick with clarity, dramatic force and genuine humour.
Here’s a perfect reason to spend an evening under the stars: a stellar cast of Miracle’s best known actors performing a masterpiece that challenges all certainties while proving a perfect remedy for disillusion!
“Truly Fabulous! Perfect example of what live outdoor theatre should be all about!”
