CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Self-denial is in fashion at the court of Navarre where the young king and three of his courtiers solemnly forswear all pleasures in favour of serious study. But when the Princess of France and her entourage arrive, it isn't long before the all-male ?academe' have broken every one of their self-imposed rules. Shakespeare's boisterous send-up of all those who try to turn their back on life is a dazzling parade of every weapon in the youthful playwright's arsenal, from excruciating cross-purposes and impersonations to drunkenness and bust-ups. It's a banquet of language, groaning with puns, rhymes and grotesque coinages.Performers Lucy Black (Rosaline), Philip Buck (Dumain), David Collins (Boyet), Paul Currier (Armado), Jonathan Gunning (Navarre), Catherine Hamilton (Katherine), Eric Jay (Moth), Siobhan McMillan (Jacquinetta), Jonathan Nibbs (Nathaniel), Roland Oliver (Holofernes), Saskia Portway (Princess), Tom Sherman (Costard), Rebecca Smart (Maria), Jacob Thomas (Longaville), Matthew Thomas (Berowne), Peter Townsend (Dull).
