Didsbury’s Fog Lane Park will be transformed into an open-air theatre this September, welcoming four spectacular shows that range from Brontë classics to modern family favourites.

Each performance comes courtesy of Heartbreak Productions, the Leamington Spa-based open-air theatre specialists who are celebrating their 31st birthday with four brand new shows.

Arriving at Fog Lane Park on Thu 1 Sep and sticking around until Sun 11 Sep, the latest season kicks off with a unique take on Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre, adding a carnival twist to the famous journey of the Victorian heroine. Performances will take place on Thu 1 Sep and Fri 2 Sep (BSL interpreted) at 7pm, with funds being collected for the Firefighters’ Charity.

On Thu 8 Sep, Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night meets Love Island in a 21st-century adaptation, as Orsino, Olivia, Viola and other hopeless romantics bid to be the last couple standing at the end of ‘Twelve Nights’.

Much Ado About Murder arrives on Fri 9 Sep — an original whodunit with all the sleuthing silliness one could hope for. Don your detective cap and grab your notebook as the audience is invited to piece together the puzzle. 

David Walliams’ family-favourite, Awful Auntie, follows the tale of little Stella Saxby as she embarks on a mission to save her family home while evading her menacing aunt. Performances take place on Sat 10 Sep at 2pm (BSL interpreted) and 6pm, and again on Sun 11 Sep at 2pm. Funds will be collected during intervals and donated to Young Lives vs Cancer.
