One Man Shakespeare show by Bowler Crab Theatre in the open air. One man, one Bard, 20 speeches, 20 circles, 20 questions. Performed outdoors at the C16th Half House Farm in Three Oaks, Hastings, TN35 4NE this is a one man show that explores Shakespeare’s most famous speeches. Bowler Crab’s Artistic Director, Stephen John answers twenty questions, the most prominent being “Why Will?”. In an effort to answer why BC are a Shakespeare only company, Stephen presents his case to twenty socially distanced circles with twenty speeches from his eight years of running his Theatre Company. Presented in two 45 minute acts, Stephen performs as characters from Shakespeare’s finest works: from Hamlet to Benedick, to Romeo to Bottom, to Caesar to Jaques. Tragedy and comedy lace this charismatic and personal performance as Stephen fights, feasts, frights, fakes and falls about laughing in every effort to share his passion.
