Creation Theatre is well established as a staple of
It is Shakespeare as you have very likely never seen or imagined it. You meet in secret locations with secret passwords to identify your fellow audience members and then you embark on a theatrical adventure which incorporates scenes enacted in offices and shops, car park and church, side streets and gardens. The ten actors do a wonderful job of telling the story and in gently encouraging the less confident members of the audience into embracing the interactive craziness of the production.
We never quite knew what to expect next and I am reluctant to reveal too many details of what went on because discovering it for yourself is part of the fun. Be assured that you may arrive wondering quite what to expect, but you will be sucked in and you will enjoy yourself and you will be amazed at the combination of modern technology and old fashioned clues, street theatre and knockabout fun. Where else will you experience a scene from inside a wh*** *** in a *** ****. Sorry, I am in danger of spilling the beans.
The ten actors were uniformly terrific, whether it was Egeus explaining his problems with his daughter to the bemusement of passers by, the Quincessential Players acting the hind legs off the ass or the young lovers running riot in a c**** y*** after the intervention of Puck.
A willingness to walk and stay on ones feet is necessary (and a visit to the loo beforehand is also advisable), but with those provisos I would thoroughly recommend this theatrical adventure to all but the youngest children. Long may Creation Theatre keep creating such imaginative versions of Shakespeare's plays.
