"We know what we are, but know not what we may be."
In this high energy comedy, directed by Bryony Ruddock (Twelfth Night; Moors Bar, Much Ado About Nothing; The Bridewell Theatre), The Mechanicals have a difficult choice. Do they stick with a good old piece of Pyramus and Thisbe to present to Hippolyta and Theseus on their nuptial day, or, something else?
“Director Bryony Ruddock has done a great job at making sure her actors understand the text and the world she has created for them.”
OffWestEnd.com Review by Denholm Spurr (on Twelfth Night at Moors Bar, 2014)
Join Bottom, Quince, Snug, Snout, Starveling and Flute as they take on the audience’s scene choices. With 15 Shakespeare scenes to pick from; every show is different. With The Mechanicals as your actors; anything could happen! Who knows, we may even get round to a little Midsummer Night’s Dream...
Come along with our experienced cast of performers on a Shakespeare adventure where, let’s face it, none of us really know what’s going to happen. This show is for both Shakespeare connoisseurs and for people who couldn’t imagine sitting through a whole one... There’s comedy, drama and adventure for people of any age!
The Mechanicals use a digital survey to ask each audience member, upon entry to the theatre, what scenes they would like to see in the show. The data is then automatically analysed and the top 5 scene choices are revealed to both audience and actors. What could possibly go wrong?
A lot, probably. But we do love a challenge.
