About this event

Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone give outstanding performances in Yorgos Lanthimos’s highly anticipated baroque masterpiece.

In the early 18th century, England fights the French with a mercurial Queen Anne (Colman) on the throne.But as it turns out the country is really governed by her companion, Lady Sarah (Weisz), and as the war consumes Sarah’s time, ambitious new servant, Abigail (Stone) steps into the breach. With brilliant casting, Colman in particular, this distinctive black comedy about power and status is packed full of scabrous, misanthropic wit and wicked intrigue.

“A period drama with a laugh rate on a par with Airplane.”  – Christopher Hooton, The Independent

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
