Your Bard – an informal interview with Will Shakespeare – a waspish comedic entertainment from our greatest literary hero in the flesh – in Radcliffe-on-Trent.
Picture the scene. A professor is giving a talk about Shakespeare authorship in the function room at the Shakespeare pub, but he doesn’t believe the man from Stratford wrote all those plays.
That’s Will’s cue to kick the door off the hinges and defend his reputation.
Come and meet the man himself and take the lid off a legend. He’ll tell you all about his family, what it’s like on tour and the glory days at the Globe Theatre
Queen Elizabeth I, Christopher Marlowe and Ned Alleyn, you’ll meet them too, along with enjoying a few of his greatest hits and maybe a sonnet or song thrown in for good measure.
Up close and personal, this is a drama where audience and characters are all in it together.
So, ladies and gentlemen, get ready to raise your glasses to Your Bard on 1st October.
It takes place at Grange Hall, Radcliffe-on-Trent, NG12 2FB.
Cabaret style – bring your own drinks and nibbles
Tickets are £9 from Pen2Paper on Main Road in Radcliffe or from RadVentures direct on 07718 159 520
