HandleBards; cycling Shakespearean actors who carry their full set, props and costumes on the back of their bikes whilst they tour Shakespeare plays across the UK. The HandleBards will be performing with us on 21st August for a bicycle-powered, laugh – out – loud production of Shakespeare’s ‘12th Night’.
Duke Orsino is in love with Lady Olivia, but she won’t have anything to do with suitors. Viola is shipwrecked and believes her twin brother Sebastian to be dead. Meanwhile, a bunch of Olivia’s servants plot to make a fool out of her pompous butler, Malvolio. There’s drunkenness, frivolity and cross-dressing a plenty.
We have Blazin’ Pizza joining us for pre – theatre street food. Check out our social media for any updates close to the event.
