Join us for our long-awaited return to Chatsworth House with Peter Shaffer’s award-winning comedy, Lettice and Lovage.
Lettice Douffet, a woman in her middle years with a love of history and a penchant for the dramatic, is employed as a tour guide in the most boring historical house in England. Fed up with delivering the prescribed tour text, she starts improvising increasingly elaborate "alternative facts". Her theatricality and her personal mission to “enlarge, enlighten, and enliven” make her a great success with the public, but not with the historical trust that runs the house. She is inevitably sacked by trust manager Lotte Schoen.
The unlikely friendship that develops between the two women sets them on the path for a hilarious adventure. This charming comedy is the perfect welcome back to our lovely home in the Theatre at Chatsworth House.
Please note that we will be seating the audience in socially distanced groups and politely request that masks are worn. For more information on how we are keeping our actors and audience safe please check the Your Visit page.
