Fairies. Goblins. Donkeys… Super soakers!?!? Four idiots wearing bed sheets as togas, attempt to stage Shakespeare’s mischievous comedy, using only a box of pound-shop props, a camel onesie, some lightsabers and a ladder they found by the bins.
The hilarious Rubbish Shakespeare Company proudly presents their critically acclaimed, unique interpretation of The Dream. Described as ‘like Horrible Histories but funnier’ (Primary Times) with influences from Python to Pixar, and featuring plenty of slapstick and innovative interactive storytelling, this is a madcap Shakespeare experience that’s unlike any other – and it’s far from rubbish!
Having produced highly accessible, all-ages Shakespeare for a decade, Rubbish Shakespeare’s Edinburgh Fringe sell-out hit is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare’s works – for kids and adults alike – and will have audiences of all ages howling in delight.
Perfect for ages 4-04!
