Shakespeare In Love And War will be performed in the open air courtyard of The George, from Tuesday 22 June to Saturday 3 July 2021, operating at a significantly reduced capacity with socially distanced seating and a smaller cast than usual.
A reduced production, specifically created for these challenging Covid times, called Shakespeare in Love and War. This is a one-act play exploring the two sides of the human heart vividly brought to life by the world’s greatest playwright and a cast of the most memorable characters ever to set foot on stage.
Audiences will feast on the lecherous Falstaff or the star-crossed lovers Romeo & Juliet; raise their patriotic spirits in the company of Henry V; delight in the knock-about comedy of Petruchio and his Kate; share the downfall of King Lear or the wonderful wit of Beatrice and Benedick. And although we had to cancel Twelfth Night, there is also a little taster of what might have been as the outrageous Malvolia trips over her own vanity.
All of these are skilfully woven, by director Richard Brown, into a tale of Love and War, staged in a novel way which respects all of the safety requirements and restrictions due to coronavirus.
