Chris-Monks-with-a-flock-of-Herdwick-sheep-at-Fornside-Farm-St.-Johns-in-the-Vale.-Photography-by-Steve-Barber.I am delighted to announce that I will be writing the music for THE SHEPHERD’S LIFE, which will be performed at Theatre By The Lake, Keswick, from the 26th March to the 23rd April 2016.

The play is an adaptation of the best selling book by James Rebanks.

Rebanks is the Herdwick Shepherd, whose account of shepherding has a strong following on Twitter – @herdyshepherd1. His family have farmed in the same area for six hundred years.

Winning the rights to dramatise The Shepherd’s Life is a triumphant coup for Theatre by the Lake and the show will be adapted and directed by Chris Monks.
