Dial M for Murder: Fri, 28 Oct 2016

Theatre by the Lake
When ex-tennis pro Tony Wendice finds out that his wealthy wife Sheila is having an affair with a handsome crime writer, burning rage soon turns to cold calculation. Driven by revenge and greedy for her substantial wealth, Tony embarks on an elaborate plot to commit the perfect murder. Blackmail and old school ties combine in Tony's cunningly orchestrated scheme. Yet even the most perfect plans can go wrong. Frantic to salvage the situation he tries to cover his tracks and turn disaster into opportunity. But the devil is in the detail and a maverick detective is in dogged pursuit of the truth. This gripping noir thriller, famously brought to the big screen by Alfred Hitchcock, transforms the ‘whodunnit’ into the ‘will they get away with it?' Is it possible to commit the perfect crime, or will justice always prevail?

Elektra: Fri, 28 Oct 2016

Theatre by the Lake
When the great Agamemnon is murdered by his wife and her new lover in a perfectly timed coup, his daughter Elektra is left distraught. Giving herself over to an all-consuming grief, her resistance to the new order of power becomes a constant provocation to her father’s killers. Slowly her anger builds into an obsession for revenge. But her only hope for the justice she craves is the return of her exiled brother Orestes. Sophokles surprised and shocked his audience in Athens with his radical treatment of what was a well-known myth. A fresh, bold and visceral production of a monumental classic Greek tragedy. Production generously supported by Bill Mapleson in memory of Doreen. Klytaimestra’s and Aigisthos’ costumes generously supported by Judith Johnstone.

Stooshie: Fri, 28 Oct 2016

Threlkeld Village Hall
The ever popular local band Stooshie are returning to Threlkeld Village Hall again, for the third time in three years. They have a growing following, so a full house can be expected, but there will still be space to dance! The band members, Simon O’Hare, Dave Muir, Rachel Swift, Pete Leeson, are all local, and Stooshie is fast gaining a reputation in Cumbria and beyond. They’ve played at nearly all the major festivals in the area (including Kendal Calling, Solfest, Sedbergh and Keswick Mountain Festival), as well as venues such as The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal, The Stage in Gateshead, Clitheroe’s The Grand as well as Keswick’s own Theatre by the Lake.

Iron: Sat, 29 Oct 2016

Theatre by the Lake
Josie hasn’t seen her mother in 15 years. Fay hasn’t had a visitor in 15 years. That is until one day when Josie turns up for prison visiting hours. Desperate to rediscover her past and longing for answers, Josie embarks on a journey to reconnect with her mother and unearth the truth, to silence the ghosts of her past. But for lifer Fay, her world has shrunk to the size and shape of her cell and dragging up the past could come at a cost to them both. A fascinating, deeply moving and absorbing psychological drama, as mother and daughter try to break through the barriers of time, memory and punishment that separate them. Strong language.

The Rivals: Sat, 29 Oct 2016

Theatre by the Lake
In the heady heat of summer on the fashionable streets of Georgian Bath, rich heiress Lydia Languish has three lovers fighting for her hand. But Lydia – a greedy devourer of romantic novels – has set her heart on eloping with a penniless infantry officer, Ensign Beverley, the choice of whom her formidable aunt Mrs Malaprop (a notorious murderer of the dictionary) deeply disapproves. What Lydia doesn’t know is that Beverley is not all he seems... In this whirlwind of romance, deception and intrigue, it’s no wonder the would-be suitors end up coming to blows. A stylish and witty revival celebrating Sheridan’s classic masterpiece.

Lady Maisery: Sun, 30 Oct 2016

Theatre by the Lake
This band explore vocal harmony to breath-taking effect through their fresh interpretations of songs and ballads. The trio burst onto the scene in 2011 to critical acclaim with ‘Album of the Week’ from The Independent and were one of the first UK groups to explore the ancient English tradition of diddling or tune singing. Sounding more akin to birdsong than conventional song, the term refers to a style of singing dance tunes rather than playing them. With accordion, harp, fiddles and voices, be prepared to be enchanted by rich harmonies and sumptuous clashes.
