The HandleBards present Romeo and Juliet

Three actors cooped up together during lockdown.

Fuelled by cabin fever and with a bookshelf full of Shakespeare, they did what they do best and created an unhinged and bonkers, laugh-out-loud version of Romeo & Juliet.

With music, mayhem and more costume changes than you can shake a spear at, expect the HandleBards usual irreverent, charming and hilarious style to come bursting onto the stage at Norden Farm.

WHY? Forget the tears and tragedy, and get ready for some live and wired Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it before.

This event will be streamed online – so you can enjoy the show live from the comfort of your home.

'An exceptional touring production…explodes with energy and is a genuine treat from start to finish'  The Stage, on the HandleBards’ Twelfth Night

Marlon Solomon - Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard's Tale

Marlon's a Jew. This didn't bother him much until he discovered that some people he knew didn't believe the Holocaust happened.

From 9/11 to shape-shifting lizards and Holocaust denial, this is a darkly comic tale of one man's journey through the conspiracy underworld. Marlon explores why conspiracy theories are more popular than ever, how fake news gives fresh currency to ancient slander and how this all relates to current issues in the Labour Party. It's a comic tale which is no laughing matter.

Conspiracy Theory: A Lizard's Tale is a piece of documentary theatre, in 2018 it became the first one-person show to be performed in the Houses of Parliament. It also won Best Spoken Word at Greater Manchester Fringe Festival in the same year.

WHY? 'Funny, moving, at some points deeply disturbing, and provides absolutely essential context for the worst aspects of how we live now' David Baddiel

Online streaming tickets are also available for this event – so you can enjoy the show live from the comfort of your home

'Shrewd, funny and important' Jonathan Freedland (The Guardian)

'Compelling, shocking, essential' Al Murray

'A Lizard’s Tale is a devastating show. Informative, absorbing and very funny. The funniest show about antisemitism on the fringe. Or anywhere I suspect' David Schneider
