We're very excited to be bringing live theatre to the Yorkshire Wolds with an alternative take on Shakespeare later this year.
Join us on 28th July when touring company 440 Theatre will visit the brewery to deliver a performance of Shakespeare with a difference.
As part of a double bill, the troupe of four actors will be performing Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet in one evening. Act One sees the 440 team wrestle with a side-splitting Macbeth, followed by an outrageous take on Rot in Act Two.
"We can’t wait to see two of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies transformed into comedies. 440 have been delighting audiences up and down the country with their fast-paced, in-your-face productions that offer an alternative take on some of the world’s most famous plays,” said Wold Top director Kate Balchin.
440 director Dom Gee-Burch said: “Stripping the narrative to its core, we keep the essence of Shakespeare’s words alive to help his magnificent stories shine at the heart of our shows. Anarchy is equally balanced with a safe and family-friendly environment.
“Our Shakespeare Double Bills are quintessentially British in their style of comedy. It's pantomime meets theatre in the park, and we can’t wait to bring it to the Yorkshire Wolds for our first performance at a brewery!”
The performance will take place outdoors, with a contingency of bringing it indoors in case of inclement weather.
Tickets cost £16 for adults and £12 for concessions, including a pint or soft drink on arrival. Early bird tickets cost £14 and £10 respectively and are available until 1st April. Camping is also available. Doors open at 5.30 pm and the performance starts at 7 pm. Visit https://bit.ly/WTShakespeare for more information and a link to book.
