A True Revival

Swanage Rep Season at the Mowlem Theatre is a perfect treat for locals and holidaymakers alike. Many theatres across the UK are now bringing back repertory, the traditional training ground for British actors, and Swanage is the latest addition to this rising trend. It has been over 25 years since The Mowlem hosted such a season.

Swanage Rep began with a summer season of 3 plays in 2017 to a warm welcome from locals and holiday makers alike. 2018 saw an equally successful second season. 

All our shows feature classic stories that everyone is sure to enjoy as a perfect summer activity.
