The Comedy of Errors: Mon, 20 Oct 2014

Theatre by the Lake
Twenty years after being separated in a shipwreck as babies, two pairs of identical twins find themselves in the seaport of Ephesus, a town with a reputation for sorcery and magic. Mistaken for each other, they are constantly bewildered by bizarre encounters, cross-purpose conversations and baffling misunderstandings. It all ends in riotous chaos. Shakespeare’s shortest play is a brilliantly colourful, mystical romantic comedy of confusion, reconciliation and reunion. Our production is Theatre by the Lake’s contribution to the 450th anniversary celebrations of Shakespeare’s birth.

Rookery Nook: Tue, 21 Oct 2014

Theatre by the Lake
She’s pretty, wears pink pyjamas and turns up unexpectedly at Rookery Nook, a rented holiday home in Somerset. Local tongues begin to wag in the quiet seaside town of Chumpton-on-Sea and so begins a chaos of embarrassments, excuses and evasions, minor deceptions and major misunderstandings. Throw in a ferocious German stepfather (with an equally ferocious dog), a retired drunken Admiral, a hen pecked husband and a malevolent charlady and you have the perfect line-up for a funny, fast-moving farce by master of the genre Ben Travers. Simply great fun for the whole family.

The Winterling: Tue, 21 Oct 2014

Theatre by the Lake
From the acclaimed writer of Jerusalem comes a brilliantly twisted thriller about living on the edge. It’s winter on Dartmoor and in a derelict farmhouse West waits for former associates from the city. The wine has been poured and he’s put on his suit. This could be his chance to get back in the game: a reunion and a return from exile. But there’s a mysterious girl upstairs, an axe by the door, and the dog is missing. Nothing is quite what it seems and going home will come at a price. “Like Harold Pinter crossed with Guy Ritchie plus Withnail and I” The Independent
