May is passed, June is here and it’s just over a month before curtains go up on our summer production, ‘Brush Up Your Shakespeare’. Hopefully you will have by now received a flyer for this forthcoming experience which is set to be something of a departure in comparison to recent productions.
In true cabaret style the Matchbox will take the audience through Comedies, Tragedies and Histories with a carefully balanced blend of the serious and comic. There will be music, singing, a lot of laughs and a few thoughtful moments as, amongst others, we homage ‘Twelfth Night’, ‘Hamlet’, ‘Anthony & Cleopatra’ and ‘Henry V’. And let me assure you this is not an evening of doublet and hose, furrowed brows and serious iambic pentameter; you will not need a GCSE in Shakespeare studies to appreciate this evening. You will be regally entertained whilst eating, drinking and I know will appreciate our bevy of marvellous skits, scenes and sketches, many in modern vein. So, go on, click the link below and do what the guys have to say… get your tickets ordered now and Brush Up Your Shakespeare.
