★★★★★ Everything Theatre
People call it ‘Sweaty Shakespeare’.
A genderblind company of five actors ‘explode with energy’ all around you. Audiences share ‘delighted laughter’ alongside ‘pin-drop silences’. We give you text that is ‘delightfully easy to understand’, ‘vibrant and alive’. Characters that are ‘poignant’, ‘moving’, and ‘shockingly funny’. Shows that are ‘bare and in your face’, full of ‘resourcefulness and invention’.
Merely Theatre produce Shakespeare that is as ‘relevant’ and ‘understandable as it was when it was first written’, making the theatre ‘resonate with life’.
*all quotes from reviews and audience members.
Yellow is The New Black in Merely Theatre’s raucous, joyous, witty and moving rendition of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. In this comical tale of identical twins, disguises, music and madness, no-one is who they seem, and their deceptions soon drive one another to new heights of absurdity.
Age 10 yrs +. The tour is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
