Most recent work at Penshurst Place was on 27 September 2022 we successfully staged and filmed Love’s Victory at Penshurst Place. The film is now freely accessible to members of the public along with an introduction to the play

The filmed coterie performance was part of an academic conference The Sidneys of Penshurst and Beyond: Contexts, Connections, Collaborations. Papers from the conference will be published in 2023 in a special double issue of the Sidney Journal.
