No Holds Bard

Monday 13th-Tuesday 14th August 2018

Driven to the brink by the infidelity of his wife and a lack of acting opportunities, an aging thespian confronts his demons in what he hopes will be a final ‘dark night of the soul’. The problem is, his demons are as crazy as he is. Arts Laureate Michael Hurst takes audiences on a glorious tour de force in which four of Shakespeare’s greatest creations - a foul-mouthed Macbeth, a confused Hamlet, a know-it-all Othello, and a really hungry Lear – come kicking and screaming into the bursting, deranged brain of a single man. An outrageous and at times profound view into one actor’s attempt at self-destruction. Ticket includes a 30 minutes Q and A with Michael Hurst after the performance. “….a well-crafted, clever, uproariously funny and ultimately moving journey…smart and witty script…belly laughs of sheer delight…there’s so much to enjoy here that it is hard to choose highlights.” - Theatreview
