COMING up in the Theatre by the Lake spring season is a new version of August Strindberg's Creditors by Howard Brenton, running from Friday until April 20. The play focuses on Adolph, a young artist deeply in love with his new wife Tekla. But a chance meeting with a suave stranger in a seaside hotel shakes Adolph’s devotion to the core. Creditors is a wickedly enjoyable black comedy, regarded by Strindberg as his masterpiece. Box office 017687-74411.

WHERE There’s Muck There’s Bras is a hilarious and thought provoking show that celebrates the real Northern Powerhouse - the sung and unsung women of the north of England - its politicians, entertainers, musicians, sportswomen, activists, writers, innovators and mould breakers. Playing Kendal's Brewery Arts Centre on Friday (8pm), stand up poet and Radio 4 regular Kate Fox and actor Joey Holden ask who gets remembered and why (and why not). Box office 01539-725133.
