A unique setting for a tale of confusion, romance and disguises in which soldiers returning from the Middle-East to discover that all is fair in love and war. Especially when love needs a little push…
The bar environment emphasises the soldiers priorities of having a cold beer and catching up or in some cases, making up with those left behind.
This modern and energetic production places the audience amongst the action of Shakespeare’s finest comedy, as they sit in the bar, sharing the same space as the characters while the story unfolds before them.
The pub setting, mutually familiar to performers and audience alike, creates immediacy, truth and relevance. At the same time, it dismantles any pre-conceptions of elitism or loftiness.
