Synopsis

A night out with the rude mechanicals. The characters are all second cousins of those seen in Shakespeare's plays and include the Bard himself. In the words of Alan Plater, the author, the characters are homage to the greatest playwright who ever lived.

Reviews

Telegraph and Argus - Sue Butterfield:

"Amateurs are so professional" "It was a professional performance from an accomplished cast with two great leads"

"Julian Freeman commanded the stage as Fat Jack, the model for Sir John Falstaff, while Gilly Rogers was formidable as Landlady Nell, upon whom Mistress Quickly was based"
