After the Dance: Mon, 25 Sep 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.

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.

Handbagged: Wed, 27 Sep 2017

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: Wed, 27 Sep 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.

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

British Women Climb: Fri, 29 Sep 2017 until Sun, 16 Sep 2018

Keswick
From pioneering travellers, to bold adventurers and elite athletes; the exhibition focuses on the experiences of women climbers, their challenges to social expectations, and their mountaineering achievements across history. Early female figures in the 1800’s not only confronted extreme mountain environments, but also extensive hostility from the male-only clubs of the time. Through continued persistence they broke onto the scene and logged some of the most ambitious ascents of the period, paving the way for all-female climbing teams that tackled Europe’s highest peaks in the 1920’s and Himalayan expeditions as early as 1950. To climb, women had to change attitudes across the social spectrum, challenging everything from the way they dressed, to the way they were perceived. The first female ascent of Mont Blanc in 1808 was soon followed with the Eiger and Matterhorn in 1864 and 1871. By the early 20th century Elizabeth Le Blond, Emily ‘Pat’ Kelly and Eleanor Winthrop Young were foundi
