RUBBISH ROMEO AND JULIET
Rubbish Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet Trailer
Enemies. Balconies. Kissing… sausage rolls!?
Three idiots attempt to stage Shakespeare’s heartbreaking tragedy using only a box of pound-shop props, a flowery dress, a Simon Cowell mask, and a broom they found by the bins. Chaos ensues.
The hilarious and celebrated Rubbish Shakespeare Company presenteth their critically-acclaimed, comedic adaptation of The Bard’s most beloved play. Described as ‘like Horrible Histories but funnier’ (Primary Times), and with influences from Monty Python to Pixar, ‘Rubbish Romeo and Juliet’ promises to be an anarchic and joyous, interactive, family-friendly event. Oh my, it’s far from rubbish!
Featuring clowning, high octane slapstick and clever mischievous storytelling, plus a unique mix of modern day language and the original text, this accessible Shakespearean production is perfect for those studying WIlliam’s works or as an introduction to Shakespeare (or even theatre itself). This high energy play has all ages belly laughing in delight.
Suitable for ages 5-105!
“RUBBISH IS CERTAINLY NOT A WORD THAT WILL WILL BE UTTERED WHEN THE AUDIENCE LEAVE THE THEATRE”
“AN ENERGETIC, ABSORBING AND IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE"
“THEY SET IT UP SO CLEVERLY THAT IT REALLY SINGS"
THE INCOMPLETE WORKS OF SHAKESPEARE
The year is 1603. King James has just taken the throne, and he isn’t a fan of theatre, especially the words and works of the 'upstart crow', William Shakespeare. Thankfully, William has been given one last chance to prove himself to the King, but he's 'unwell' and can't complete the script in time.
So it’s up to our band of merry players to finish it for him. Drawing upon suggestions from the audience, this eccentric, makeshift troupe will finish the play - one way or another - or it’s off with their heads!
Utilising clown, physical comedy, storytelling and live music, this completely improvised piece of theatre is a joyous, participatory, family-friendly event. Suitable for all ages, even those new to the bard (or even theatre).
6+ Family Friendly
“A CAVALCADE OF CHARACTERS, CHAOS AND CLOWN... I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU CATCH THIS SHOW IF YOU CAN. IT IS DIFFERENT TO THE NORMAL IMPROV WORK ON OFFER, AND THIS MAKES A REFRESHING CHANGE. IT BLENDS LIVE MUSIC, CLOWN, MAGIC REALISM, PHYSICAL THEATRE AND STORYTELLING INTO A DELICIOUS MIX”
