TBTL announce reopening plans and new co-production

Theatre by the Lake is delighted to announce their first major production will be Home I’m Darling by Laura Wade in a co-production with Stephen Joseph Theatre and Bolton Octagon. 

It’s a second outing for the comedy which packed houses at the National Theatre/Theatr Clywd when it debuted in 2018 and will be directed by TBTL’s very own Artistic Director, Liz Stevenson.

The theatre will open in the autumn with a schedule of other events due to be announced in the summer.  Building on the enormous success of their ‘Spark’ programme, they’ll continue to offer digital performances as well as some exciting outdoor activities over the summer months.

Tickets for Home I’m Darling will go on sale by the summer alongside further programming announcements, and audiences are encouraged to sign up to the theatre’s mailing list to be the first to hear more.

The venue’s Artistic Director and Executive Director Liz Stevenson and James Cobbold said:

“We’re thrilled to be able to share the news of our first major production, we can’t wait to welcome audiences back through our doors.  We’re delighted to be producing this wonderfully funny play with two fantastic northern theatres and look forward to sharing more about our future programme soon.”

“We’d like to thank the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund whose support this year has made it possible for us to keep going and reopen. We are hugely grateful to Arts Council England, our staff, board, volunteers, friends, sponsors, supporters, and audiences without whose support over this past year we would quite simply not been able to survive.”
