Romeo and juliet the egg theatre bath

Romeo & Juliet
02 – 07 April

Following the company’s sell-out visit in Spring 2018, Box Clever returns with their thrilling adaptations of two of Shakespeare’s best loved works. Michael Wicherek’s adaptation fully realises the characters of the lovers and brings to life their world: the sound, heat and colour of Verona, the dark threat of the feud between their families and the ever-increasing speed at which events hurry the lovers to their inevitable doom. It also, through the inclusion of the Narrator ensures that Romeo and Juliet themselves do not remain literary creations distant from the 21st century.

Macbeth at the egg bath

05 – 06 April

Vibrant language and physical theatre chart the devastating effect that one act of evil can have on an otherwise honourable and loyal man – we see how the ripples of that act spread to destroy both Macbeth himself and all those for whom he cared. As their actions are challenged by a third character who also brings the wider world of the play to life, Macbeth and his wife are seen to become ever more prey to the devastating horrors they have unleashed as they move inevitably towards their doom.

Folk Lore
11 – 13 April

For we were up as soon as any day-O, And for to fetch the summer home

The summer and the May-O
For summer is a-come-O, And winter is a-gone-O

It is uncertain times for the collective nations of Great Britain. The people are labelled divided, rootless, without an anchor in their own culture. Particularly the English.

And yet this year, as with every other year, thousands will descend on the small town of Helston, Cornwall, to celebrate Flora Day. Dancing through the streets and singing the mysterious ‘Hal-an-Tow’, they will take part in the oldest English folk custom still practised today – one whose roots are shrouded in mystery.

Theatre Royal Bath Theatre School explore an elusive cultural heritage through traditional story, song, and dance. Can we answer any questions about our future by looking back into the mists of our past?

Set within the egg auditorium, Folk Lore will begin at a secret outside location, to be confirmed.
