CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.

What You Will

What You WillT0796137566
This hysterical (and occasionally historical) 90-minute gallop through all things Shakespearean is an irreverent one-man everything there is ?to be or not to be' about William Shakespeare: the greatest soliloquies ever written along with accounts of the funniest disasters ever perpetrated on the stage. Juliet's foolish nurse, gory Macbeth, Hamlet, Richard II, even Charles Dickens, James Thurber, Noel Coward and Stevie Wonder all make appearances during the evening. Drawing on his 22 years as a company member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, celebrated on both sides of the Atlantic for his performance in the title role of The Adventures of Nicholas Nickelby, and playing Hamlet, Berowne, Roderigo, Posthumous, Claudio and countless other Shakespearean roles big and very small, Rees relives the struggles and amusements of his formative years as an actor. The evening is interwoven with the fun, heartbreak, triumphs, jokes and celebrated mishaps that he, and every other actor that ever trod the boards, have encountered when coming face to face with the Bard of Avon.
