Theatre by the Lake
When Maggie met the Queen. Tea at four. Handbags at dawn. Two icons, one destined to rule, the other to lead. But when the gloves came off, who had the upper hand? Moira Buffini’s sensational comedy looks behind the closed doors of the palace to speculate what really happened when two of the most powerful women in the world clashed.

Miss Julie: Mon, 21 Aug 2017

Theatre by the Lake
Midsummer’s Eve, Sweden. A night when the sun doesn’t set. A night of drinking and dancing. A night to break the rules. When Julie finds herself alone on her father’s estate, she throws caution to the wind and gate-crashes the servants’ party. In the sultry heat of that long, light night, she finds herself in a dangerous tryst with her father’s manservant, Jean. What begins as a flirtatious game, as the two vie for power, slowly descends into a savage fight for survival. Miss Julie was written at a time of industrial and social unrest, a ground-breaking masterpiece that still provokes and shocks audiences today. Award-winning playwright Howard Brenton brings Strindberg’s genius to life in this brilliant new adaptation. Scenes of a sexual nature

As You Like It: Wed, 23 Aug 2017

Theatre by the Lake
Shakespeare’s beguiling tale of mistaken identity, pastoral comedy and love. Daughter of an exiled duke, quick-witted and popular Rosalind is banished from court by her jealous uncle. Accompanied by her devoted cousin Celia, Rosalind disguises herself as a boy and heads into the Forest of Arden. There she finds Orlando and, in the bewitching other world of the Forest, counsels him in the art of love. As You Like It is one of Shakespeare’s most enchanting comedies and Rosalind is the most witty and wise-cracking heroine of them all. An exciting collaboration with Shared Experience, the award-winning theatre company lauded for their visually dynamic storytelling whose iconic productions include Mill on the Floss and Jane Eyre.

Remarkable Invisible: Wed, 23 Aug 2017

Theatre by the Lake
“He wouldn’t be the first misguided, self-delusional genius. So smart and so dumb.” Peter Solverson is an ageing academic who cannot let go of his work and his dreams of making a scientific breakthrough. When his grown up children return home to help their parents downsize, their final hours in the family home bring long buried tensions to the surface and accusations, secrets, and bitter truths spill out. This rich and compelling new play from award-winning writer Laura Eason is a resonant American family drama exploring the complex joy, love, and disappointments anyone with a family will recognize. Remarkable Invisible follows the success of Eason’s play Sex with Strangers, which was originally produced by Steppenwolf Theatre and receives its UK premiere at Hampstead Theatre in 2017. She is also a writer for Emmy award-winning Netflix series House of Cards. Strong language.

After the Dance: Thu, 24 Aug 2017 until Fri, 25 Aug 2017

Theatre by the Lake
A dazzling dissection of love, class and the capacity for self-deceit. David and Joan Scott-Fowler were Bright Young Things of the 1920s and live a glamorous life of hedonism and pleasure: debauched parties, serious drinking, sparkling wit and superficiality. But times have moved on and they are no longer as bright or as young as they once were. When a young and idealistic couple come into their lives, they begin to realise that the gaiety of their youth is wearing thin and the precarious game around which their existence is constructed begins to fall apart. Sharply satirical and heartrendingly beautiful, After the Dance is about a world on the cusp of enormous change. Neglected for many years, it is now considered to be one of the great works of a master dramatist.
