Event description

Description

Runaways. Fairies. Goblins. WATER PISTOLS!?! Look out, it’s Rubbish Shakespeare!

After 2018’s sell-out ‘Romeo and Juliet’ - and due to popular demand - the Rubbish Shakespeare Company return to Birkenhead Priory and St Mary’s Tower for another anarchic outdoor summer performance.

This time, our madcap troupe of four have the Bard’s impish tale of forbidden love and cheeky pixies in their sights.

Their plan, to stage the greatest edition of the Dream ever seen, complete with “magic in it and everything". Will they succeed? Of course not - they’re ‘Rubbish!’

Sit back, recline on your picnic blanket, and giggle along, as our four hapless idiots fail spectacularly for an hour for your amusement.

Full of high-octane slapstick action and mischievous storytelling, this vibrant reimagining promises belly laughs for all ages - from ages 4 to 104!

Expect a trail of wigs, bubble guns, life-size cardboard cutouts, and a frankly pitiful attempt at roller skating.

Age guidance: (4+). Babes in arms free.

PRAISE FOR 'ROMEO AND JULIET’ (2018)

“This must be one of the funniest interpretations of the classic tragedy to ever be performed. Rubbish is certainly not a word that will be uttered when the audience leave the theatre”
★★★★★ (Families Online)

“They set it up so cleverly it really sings”
★★★★ (Daily Record)

“It takes a lot of talent to do something this silly and make it work”
★★★★ (North West End)

“What an achievement!”
★★★★ (Buxton Fringe)

“Your kids will love it; so will you!”
Simon Nelson, Development Executive: BBC Writers Room. BAFTA Nominated

“100% amazing”
Lucy Porter, Comedian
