About this show

All is not well in the state of The Building Stage. Queen Gertrude is dead; King Phycus is blinded; Hamlet's nauseous sister Juliet is being wed against her will to the cloying, hunchbacked Gloucester whilst her one true love, the Roman Romeo, assists Brutus in plotting the ruination of the English throne. Join us as the flat-footed charlatans of the Lord Chamberlain's Men combine forces with the visionary roustabouts of The Strange Tree Group to present an Elizabethan tragedy of (ahem) 'Shakespearean' proportions. A cast of six Strange Tree stalwarts take on six blended tragedies, thirty-one parts, forty location changes and one enormous sword-swinging battle of twenty thousand men in this world premiere send up of Shakespeare's first (and possibly worst) tragedy: Shakespeare's King Phycus
