The incredibly popular Heartbreak Productions are back at Walton, showcasing three new outdoor plays at Walton this summer.

This year, they will be performing another fantastic David Walliams play, a classic Jane Eyre tale, and a brand new, original story for lovers of all things Shakespeare.

The first of the productions is MacHamLear, where you are invited to cast your vote at the battle of the Bard on Friday 9 June. Take part in this unique experiment that will answer which play is the best the Bard has to offer?

Next up is Bad Dad, a warm-hearted tale that follows the highs and lows of a father-son relationship, based on the book by celebrated children’s author, David Walliams. The show will take place at Walton Hall and Gardens on two dates this summer – Friday 16 June and Friday 1 September.

Finally, the third production – Sense and Sensibility – is this year’s Jane Austen adaptation, which will be held on Friday 5 August.

Cllr Tony Higgins, cabinet member for leisure and community said: “We’re incredibly happy to welcome back Heartbreak Productions this summer, who are once again sharing their fantastic, family-friendly plays, set against the backdrop of Walton’s beautiful grounds.

“These outdoor theatre events always prove popular and tickets sell fast, so don’t risk missing out and book yours today!’

All productions will take place outside in the gardens and will go ahead no matter the weather, including rain, so make sure you check the weather forecast and dress appropriately.

Bad Dad is suitable for audiences aged seven and over, with MacHamLear and Sense and Sensibility recommended for ages nine and over. Doors will open at 5.30pm with the show starting at 6.30pm.
