Shakespeare performance company Bowler Crab will be returning to the 600 year old Mermaid Inn in Rye to present their debut performance of a new and exciting pocket production “Shakespeare & Love”, a showcase with performances of Bowler Crab's favourite love scenes from the canon.
Exploring and evaluating the theme of love in Shakespeare's writing, this presentation includes plays never before performed by Bowler Crab as well as new takes on scenes from their past works including: The Winter's Tale, Much Ado About Nothing, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Hamlet, King Lear, The Merchant of Venice, Othello, Macbeth, Romeo & Juliet and Twelfth Night! Actors performing are Christabel Clark (Drama Centre London and University of Cambridge), William Osbeldiston-Hawkes (Stratford-upon-Avon and Fourth Monkey London) and Stephen James John (Producer, Director, University of Kent).
In 2017, BC formed a relationship with The Mermaid Inn as a performance venue following the discovery that Shakespeare’s company, the Chamberlain’s Men, visited The Mermaid in 1597. This is BC’s eighth visit to The Mermaid, booking in advance is advised as their spring shows have always sold out.
The performance in the Tudors Rooms will start at 2pm, there will be an interval and it will end at approx. 4.30 pm. Tickets are £14 from the www.bowler-crab.com or telephone 07801893115.
