rails

Mike is a 16 year old who’s really into his scooter. He’s really into Sarah too. But she’s probably not that into him.

His brother Ben is stuck working in a petrol station and dreams of escape and their mum can’t seem to speak anymore. Cars are passing through the dead end town they live in, but they don’t ever stop.

One summer, with the temperature rising and the town sweltering in the grip of a heat wave, their lives collide and something, anything, has to break.

Simon Longman’s funny, poignant and emotionally arresting new play was shortlisted for the 2015 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting. Beautifully written and acutely observed, Rails is a play about loneliness, dreaming and trying to hope in a town that doesn’t seem to want you to.

Strong language, smoking and scenes of violence

Theatre by the Lake has brought the magic of theatre and the excitement of the imagination to one of Britain’s loveliest and remotest counties.

The theatre, hailed by The Independent as “the most beautifully located and friendly theatre in Britain”, opened in 1999. It is set a short stroll from Derwentwater on the edge of Keswick, amid the magnificent western fells of the Lake District.

With two stages, a 400-seat Main House and 100-seat Studio; they present up to nine of their own productions of classic, modern and new plays throughout the year. Six plays are performed in repertory from May to November by a resident company of up to 14 actors.

Theatre by the Lake aim to produce a new play every year and their Christmas plays have become firm favourites with family audiences. The Theatre aims for the highest standards of production and design and many Theatre by the Lake productions have won multi-star reviews from national and local critics.

The theatre hosts a variety of festivals and visiting companies and is open for 52 weeks each year.
