Shakespeare For Breakfast - One4Review

This is Fringe time when the day does not start before midday. This is Shakespeare. I don’t do Shakespeare! So why an I at this show at 10.00 am on a Saturday morning? The answer is simple dear reader, C Theatre’s troupe of young thespians always produce as quality show and this years bunch certainly maintain the high standard previously set. Loosely based, and I do mean loose, on The Taming of the Shrew and performed by a cast of five who play the many characters with ease. It occasionally has a panto feel about it, booing baddies, shouting out warnings as to poisoned croissants, you get the picture, as the high paced, genuinely funny nonsense draw to it’s inevitable conclusion. The five I saw were Cairid Lloyd, Emily Jane Hagger, Hayley Emma Otway, Beth Packer and Anna Westford performed, but at other performances you may see Gemma Whelan and Sara Pascoe instead. The talented bunch devised and wrote the piece together with Damien Sandys who also has the task of directing the on stage mayhem. So if this sounds As You Like it, (Julius) Caesar the moment before the tickets become Too Darned Hot. Oh and you get coffee and croissants included in the price of ticket also. ****
