From M6 jct 40 and follow A66 towards Keswick, follow brown signs to Theatre and Lakeside. On foot the theatre is a 5 minute walk from the centre of Keswick.


Acclaimed digital theatre makers imitating the dog turn their attention to Joseph Conrad’s extraordinarily influential novel, Heart of Darkness.

This bold, explosive re-telling is a visually rich piece of theatre fusing live performance with cinema, soundscape and animation. Conrad’s story of lies and brutal greed, and of the dark heart which beats within us all, is re-imagined in a Europe which has been lost to the destructive lust for power. What emerges is a tale which is absolutely for our time.
