From Theatre By The Lake, Keswick

06 - 10 November | Main House

Things look bleak for sisters Marianne and Elinor Dashwood when they find themselves cheated out of their inheritance and turfed out of their home with little money to live on and even less to recommend themselves to suitors. Banished to a chilly cottage in Devonshire, the arrival of a dashing stranger promises to change their fortunes forever; but as the sisters each discover, the course of true love never did run smooth.

13 - 14 November | Main House

Bennett's Olivier Award-winning comedy masterpiece explores one of Britain's most fascinating stories of espionage - that of Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt; their secret identities, hidden motivations and a rather unexpected interrogation by the Queen. A compelling double bill of forgery, fraud and Soviet spies.

13 - 14 November | Studio

16 - 17 November | Main House

Joing aristocratic man about town Bertie Wooster and his dutiful valet Jeeves for a weekend away at a country house. When Wooster is called on to play matchmaker, the ever dependable Jeeves is on hand to step in and save Bertie's bacon.
