Theatre by the Lake in Keswick will open up to audiences again from October 6. The theatre has put its autumn season on sale to priority bookers today, with general sales to start on July 28.
The autumn season has two main shows, Home I’m Darling by Laura Wade and Jacaranda by Lorna French, taking the programme to Christmas, the entertainment for which will be announced in September.
Home I’m Darling runs from October 6-30. The show, a co-production with Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph theatre and Bolton Octagon, will be directed by TBTL’s artistic director Liz Stevenson.
Jacaranda is a co-production with leading rural touring theatre company Pentabus and covers general themes of love and loss after a chance meeting of two unlikely strangers on the longest night of the year. The show runs from November 4-13.
Both productions will have some guaranteed socially-distanced performances, while other performances will be sold initially in socially-distanced groups of varying sizes which may be relaxed to full capacity later.
Strict Covid precautions will be in place to ensure the safety of audiences with enhanced cleaning, ventilation, safe queueing and reduced touch-points. Like many theatres, TBTH is also catering for those still unwilling to join large, enclosed groups by offering an online, on-demand version of Home I’m Darling (bookable now, viewable October 23-30).
