Details

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. First performed in 2007 at Folger Theatre, Washington and following a brief run in Shakespeare's home, Stratford-upon-Avon, in 2010, this is the London premiere of Rees' ninety minute show. Running time: 1hr 30mins

Performers Roger Rees.
