Romeo & Juliet
August 14 @ 7:00 pm UTC+0 - 8:30 pm
Free – £18
Three HandleBards cooped up together during lockdown. Fuelled by cabin fever and a bookshelf full of Shakespeare, we did what the Bards do best and created an unhinged and bonkers, laugh-out-loud version of Romeo & Juliet.
With music, mayhem and more costume changes than you can shake a spear at, expect our usual irreverent, charming and hilarious style to come bursting onto the stage at Hexham Abbey.
Forget the tears and tragedy, pack a picnic and get ready for some socially-distanced, live and wired Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it before.
This is an outdoor production so please feel free to bring your own chairs, blankets and cushions. The show running time is 90 minutes (without an interval).
How it will work
The show will take place outdoors, in all weathers, so please dress appropriately. We won’t allow umbrellas onsite as they block sight lines – but ponchos and raincoats can be rather fetching. You’re also welcome to bring your own picnic to the show – as long as you promise to take your rubbish with you when you go, and recycle everything you can!
