Secret Garden in Keswick

David Upton

Classic children’s book The Secret Garden is given a new lease of life in a stage adaptation by playwright Jessica Swale, when it plays at Theatre by the Lake from November 24 to January 13.

Originally written by Frances Hodgson Burnett, this adaptation features puppetry and live music set to an original score by Barnaby Race.

The production is directed by Liz Stevenson, associate director at Theatre by the Lake, who directed this summer’s production of Handbagged.
