We’re spoiling you guy this week with two fantastic pieces of Theatre!
Nicholas Collett is returning with his one man show ‘ Your Bard on Thursday 4th April at 7.30pm and on Sunday 7th April at 2pm we will be joining tiny Tom on his very big adventure when Lyngo Theatre bring ‘ Tom Thumb’ to Millom!
Professor Nother is giving a talk about Shakespeare authorship in the function room at the Shakespeare pub – but he doesn’t believe the man from Stratford wrote those plays.
That’s Will’s cue to kick the door off the hinges and defend his reputation. Come and meet the man himself and take the lid off a legend in your local. He’ll tell you all about his family, what it’s like on tour and the glory days at the Globe. Queen Elizabeth I, Christopher Marlowe and Ned Alleyn – you’ll meet them too. Intermingled with a few of his greatest hits – and maybe a sonnet or a song.
There’s no fourth wall here – we’re all in this together!!
Ladies and gentlemen raise your glasses – Your Bard!
From Bay Life, reviewing the show at the Royal Oak, Pevensey “A piece of pure theatre magic”
From Nouse Magazine on the show at York Theatre Royal – “On Collett’s stage, William Shakespeare has truly become “our” bard, the bard of the people and a bard among people – all thanks to our modern playwright’s at times comical, at times deep and moving, but always original and fond rendition of him.”
One night tiny Tom overhears Mum and Dad talking – there’s nothing left to eat so they are going to leave him and his six brothers in the forest! Outwitting his parents and the ogre Tom shows everybody that even though he is small he is still mighty as he protects his brothers, finds the treasure and makes sure they’ll never be hungry again. Performed entirely on and under a kitchen table this classic story is brought to life in a playful and fascinating show full of Lyngo’s magic with feathery spinning birds, a flying house and a portable forest. Come and join tiny Tom on his very big adventure!
Performed entirely on and under a kitchen table this wee wonder of a show is full of Lyngo magic with feathery spinning birds, a flying house and a portable forest. CBeebies Patrick Lynch, who has been performing it for more than a decade, brings this classic story to life in a playful and fascinating show.
Hope to see you soon,
Love from Team Beggar’s xx
