Conrad Lynch has stepped down as artistic director of Theatre by the Lake after opening The Other Place at Park Theatre, the final show in his second summer season.

It is believed he disagreed with the theatre’s board over the future direction of its development.

His tenure saw the company produce five world premières and forge links with major partners across the UK including Jermyn Street Theatre, Park Theatre, The Royal Exchange, Shared Experience, Sherman Theatre and York Theatre Royal.

Lynch, who took up the position in September 2016, will return to being a freelance producer based in the Eden Valley.
