Venture behind the scenes of theatre and Hollywood and meet a Hobbit along the way this forthcoming season at The Dukes.

The Lancaster theatre will be staging three of its own productions throughout the spring and summer alongside a packed programme of comedy, drama, dance and children’s entertainment.

The year of drama begins with I Was A Wife, written and starring actor Polly Lister, recent winner of a UK Theatre Award who is currently appearing in The Dukes’ Christmas production of Beauty and the Beast.

Polly goes on a raw and comic journey through marriage told with the help of characters she has portrayed along the way, including the witch she played in The Dukes 2014 outdoor production of Hansel and Gretel.

I Was A Wife runs from January 28 - February 6 in The Round.

In the summer, The Dukes return to Williamson Park with JRR Tolkien’s fantasy adventure – The Hobbit – from July 5 - August 13.

The woods and pathways of the park will become enchanted forests and misty mountains filled with strange and wonderful creatures desperately searching for the lost ring.

More shows will be revealed soon.
