Midnight at the Boar’s Head by Fine Chisel
Shakespeare’s favourite pub brought to life.
Outside, the land is burning.
But in the bar, music is playing, drink is flowing and there are stories to be told.
The Boar’s Head in London’s Cheapside was Shakespeare’s favourite pub. Fine Chisel bring it to life and fill it with an array of colourful characters. Some of them you’d expect to find there, propping up the bar. Others we’ve relocated from across the Complete Works. Grab yourself a glass and come join them…
Foot-stomping live music, party-popper warfare and folk-fuelled storytelling.
Originally commissioned by Theatre Royal Bath.
Winner – Three Weeks Editors’ Award, Edinburgh 2012.
***** ‘Genuinely outstanding… Bawdy, raucous, immersive… it’s the fun of Shakespeare as it should be’ – Three Weeks.
***** ’Fine Chisel have sieved through the entire works of Shakespeare, done a bit of jiggery-pokery… and come out with a masterpiece’ – Fringe Guru.
