This summer, Theater Mitu upends Anton Chekhov’s 1903 drama The Cherry Orchard with interjections from Nobuhiko Obayashi’s 1977 cult horror film HOUSE, text from company-conducted interviews, and live music, for a technology-driven work about houses and the places they hold in our lives.

Created in and for a moment of mass migration and displacement, Theater Mitu's HOUSE or how to lose an orchard in 90 minutes or less is billed as a “detailed portrait of what we value, what haunts us, and what gives us the courage to move forward.”

Performances will run August 24–September 8 at MITU580 (580 Sackett St., Brooklyn).

Directed by Rubén Polendo, the new work is created and performed by collaborating artists Kayla Asbell, Denis Butkus, Aysan Celik, Alex Hawthorn, Justin Nestor, Scott Spahr, Corey Sullivan, Ada Westfall, and Isabella Uzcátegui.
