The popular Handlebards theatre company return to Lyme Regis for an outside performance of Shakespeare’s tragedy.
The HandleBards are the world’s first cycling theatre company. Before touring their “seriously silly” production of Romeo and Juliet around the world, they pedalled it 1500 miles around the UK by bicycle, with all the necessary set, props and costume in tow. Now, the show is back by popular demand – and, in usual HandleBards style, you can expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.Join the HandleBards’ all-female troupe outside the beautiful Marine Theatre for Romeo and Juliet as you’ve never seen it before!
And what’s the play about? In Verona, the Montagues and Capulets are in the throes of a long-running family feud. In the midst of this two young members of the families – Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet – fall in love at the Capulet Ball. Forbidden by their family allegiances, they marry in secret. Hilarity ensues… Well, sort of.
