Bury Fair archiveIn this affectionate satire of his home town, Thomas Shadwell throws a pair of London sparks and a French pretender into the world of Bury St Edmunds. A pretentious female fop and her mother, a handful of gloriously idiotic local wags and a young woman in disguise as a boy to escape the will of her father - all dance headlong into chaos. All the fun of the fair in Bury indeed! Thomas Shadwell was born at Stanton Hall, Norfolk in 1642. Educated at Bury St Edmunds School and at Caius College, Cambridge, he was made Poet Laureate in 1688 and wrote Bury Fair the following year.
