We were thrilled to see the world premiere performance of Nicholas Pierpan and Michael Oakley’s William Wordsworth at Keswick’s Theatre by the Lake.
The play follows the struggles for creative expression in the poet’s life, his stormy relationship with Coleridge, and the death of his children, before moving to his beloved home for the rest of his life, Rydal Mount. It was here that he found both peace and inspiration, and we are open every day for you to visit the house he loved and the gardens where he began an ongoing process of natural landscaping.
