THE Theatre by the Lake is set to host an exclusive screening of Making Noise Quietly, directed by Dominic Dromgoole.

Adapted from the award-winning play by Robert Holman, Making Noise Quietly is a delicate, witty and poetic triptych of stories that paint a human picture of the subtly devastating effects of war.

A conscientious objector and a roaming artist find tenderness as the carnage of the Second World War unfolds across the English Channel. A bereaved mother struggles with bitterness and love in recollecting her son, lost in the Falklands. Deep in the Black Forest of Germany, an ageing holocaust survivor seeks to bring peace to a disturbed young boy and his equally wild step-father.

After the screening at the Keswick venue, there will be a post-show discussion with the film’s director, Dominic Dromgoole, who was the artistic director of Shakespeare’s Globe and the director of the current Oscar Wilde season in the West End.

This debut feature film by Dromgoole's Open Palm Films stars Deborah Findlay, Trystan Gravelle, Barbara Marten and Geoffrey Streatfeild.

All proceeds from this screening will be donated to Theatre by the Lake’s work with young people.

Making Noise Quietly screens at the Theatre by the Lake on Sunday July 1, from 7.15pm, and tickets are available from the venue's box office.
