Thisbe

Fourteen years have passed since the fateful night Thisbe’s parents, Helena and Demetrius, were lost in the woods in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The only thing they remember is waking up completely in love with one another. But as their love becomes obsession, where does this leave their neglected and confused daughter, Thisbe?

WHY? BSL interpreted and with an original score, this play is full of playful wit and boisterous theatricality

Suitable for ages 12+ years.

Uncle Vanya

Filmed at the Harold Pinter Theatre, London in August 2020.

Sonya (Aimee Lou Wood) and her Uncle Vanya (Toby Jones) while away their time on an isolated estate, visited occasionally only by the local doctor Astrov (Richard Armitage).

However, when Sonya’s father Professor Serebryakov (Roger Allam) suddenly returns with his restless, alluring, new wife Yelena (Rosalind Eleazar), polite facades crumble and long repressed feelings start to emerge. As the conflicted family are forced to confront their despair, loneliness and each other, can the beauty of life help them find new hope?

A new adaptation of the Anton Chekhov masterpiece by Conor McPherson directed by Ian Rickson. As the majority of theatres across the world remain in darkness, Uncle Vanya’s exquisite ensemble overcome the considerable challenges of working in a global pandemic, returning to the Harold Pinter Theatre to film the production, which is currently nominated for four Olivier Awards.

WHY? Full of tumultuous frustration and hidden passions, but brimming with hope and optimism for the future, Uncle Vanya is a must-see event for our times

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.

Online streaming tickets are also available for this event – 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
