To The Lighthouse

Theatre by The Lake will stage the world première of a major new adaptation of To The Lighthouse to theatre audiences digitally across Cumbria from June 25–27.

Virginia Woolf’s book is brought to dramatic life by playwright Marina Carr and award-winning director Annabelle Comyn. The play opens on the Ramsay family and carefree days spent with friends by the sea. But what appears tranquil on the surface masks deep currents.

Carr’s adaptation captures the flux of the characters’ inner thoughts and re-imagines them in a theatrical landscape.

The cast includes Maura Bird, Colin Campbell, Declan Conlon, Derbhle Crotty, Aoife Duffin, Nick Dunning, Olwen Fouéré and Kyle Hixon.
