World première for Keswick

David Upton

American playwright and screenwriter Laura Eason’s latest play Remarkable Invisible is to have its world première at Keswick’s Theatre by the Lake.

Best known for her work as a writer and producer on the Netflix drama House of Cards, Eason has most recently been working on her feature film debut produced by and starring Sarah Jessica Parker.

Remarkable Invisible tells a story be familiar to many. With grown-up children having long left the family home, Peter and Helen Solverson make the difficult decision to downsize. When their children return to help with the emotionally charged task of packing up, their final hours in the house bring long buried tensions to the surface and accusations, secrets and bitter truths spill out.

The production is directed by Zoë Waterman (who directed last summer season’s production of The Vertical Hour), and boasts a cast of four: Matt Addis, Ian Barritt, Eliza Hunt and Alice Selwyn; all involved in Handbagged currently showing in the Main House. Remarkable Invisible will play in the intimate Studio space.

Remarkable Invisible runs from August 11 to November 4.
