The Shepherd’s Life

This book by James Rebanks has very recently been in the Best Seller List. Having read the book, which was given me as a gift, with my friend I was delighted to see the play at the Theatre by the Lake in Keswick.

It was so professionally acted and the antics of the the sheep dogs were delightful. I think their acting skills overtook the performance by the actors. That’s not running down the actors; they were brilliant.

I was also impressed by the empathy of the audiences. I could almost hear them saying ‘Yes, I’ve been there.’ I’ve suffered that.’ A wonderful day out in stunning scenery.
