Made by TBTL Theatre by the Lake & Pentabus present


by Lorna French Thu 4 – Sat 13 Nov

‘Sometimes it feels so exposing just walking in the village. I told Jimmy to ignore it at first, he tried to, but it’s isolating he said, eyes on you, not a word spoken. Even when you meet their eyes they don’t look away. Like they have a right to, like you’re a
spectacle, an object.’

Olivia has recently moved into her great uncle’s farmhouse. She’s not local, but she knows her way around. Matty is a gamekeeper, but he doesn’t often tell anyone. He’s wary of newcomers.  These unlikely strangers find themselves beside a stream on the longest night of the year.

Theatre by the Lake and Pentabus present a brilliant new drama from award-winning playwright Lorna French which explores loss, love, prejudice, race and belonging.
