BY FRANCIS BEAUMONT. PERFORMED BY EAST 15 BA ACTING & STAGE COMBAT
In Francis Beaumont’s Jacobean satire, a production of a classical text is given a breath of fresh air when the audience blur the lines between traditional theatre and an interactive experience. This ground-breaking play-within-a-play sets the stage for a type of immersive theatre, long before the concept had been formulated and popularised.
The audience have paid for their tickets and they know what they want; why shouldn’t they express their opinions? Why shouldn’t they be allowed to take part? Why should they simply watch a play when they can experience a play?
A farcical Jacobean comedy with a modern twist, this production is a laugh-out-loud, sword-fight-fueled, fun-for-all-the-family event!
