People call it ‘Sweaty Shakespeare’.
A genderblind company of five actors ‘explode with energy’ all around you. Audiences share ‘delighted laughter’ alongside ‘pin-drop silences’. We give you text that is ‘delightfully easy to understand’, ‘vibrant and alive’. Characters that are ‘poignant’, ‘moving’, and ‘shockingly funny’. Shows that are ‘bare and in your face’, full of ‘resourcefulness and invention’.
Merely Theatre produce Shakespeare that is as ‘relevant’ and ‘understandable as it was when it was first written’, making the theatre ‘resonate with life’.
*all quotes from reviews and audience members.
Yellow is The New Black in Merely Theatre’s raucous, joyous, witty and moving rendition of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. In this comical tale of identical twins, disguises, music and madness, no-one is who they seem, and their deceptions soon drive one another to new heights of absurdity.
“Wreaking havoc and inducing raucous laughter” Edinburgh Guide ****
“This is cracking theatre, and a triumph of resourcefulness and invention” Eastbourne Herald
“How can it be so clear? this can’t be right? is this really Shakespeare?” Theatre South
“I laughed from start to finish and came away with a whole new appreciation for the work of Shakespeare” North West End ****
“The production was poignant and moving, yet shockingly funny at all the right moments” Everything Theatre *****
