Runaways. Fairies. Goblins. WATER PISTOLS!?! Look out, it’s Rubbish Shakespeare!
This time, our madcap cast of four have the Bard’s impish tale of forbidden love and pixies in their sights.
Their plan, to stage the greatest edition of the Dream ever seen complete with magic in it and everything. Will they succeed? Of course not - they’re ‘Rubbish!’ Sit back, relax and giggle along, as our four hapless idiots fail for an hour for your amusement.
Full of high-octane slapstick action and mischievous storytelling, this vibrant reimagining brings belly laughs for all ages.
Expect a trail of wigs, bubble guns, life-size cardboard cutouts, and a frankly pitiful attempt at roller skating.
Your kids will love it, and you will too.
“RUBBISH IS CERTAINLY NOT A WORD THAT WILL WILL BE UTTERED WHEN THE AUDIENCE LEAVE THE THEATRE”
Enemies. Balconies. Kissing. Sausage rolls!?
Shakespeare's epic tale of star-crossed lovers has been ‘Rubbished!!!’
Sporting a national reputation - from Edinburgh Festival Fringe to collaborations with the Royal Shakespeare Company and national school tours - this all-male, all-silly, troupe present an hour of multi-roling, wigs, water, and floppy swords. It’s Shakespeare's most anarchic tragedy yet.
Cheer as Romeo and his bearded beloved meet. Celebrate as they marry and reunite their warring families. Guffaw as all the while our four highly-strung performers squabble, bicker and strive to have the last laugh.
Rubbish Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet is perfect, both as an introduction to Shakespeare or even for the most ardent fan of the bard - from wide-eyed schoolboy to cultured Nan and everything in between. A true family show that really is Shakespeare For All.
