Outdoor theatre at Nunnington Hall
Saturday 16 July 18.30pm - 21.30pm, come and experience a unique performance of Shakespeare’s classic Richard III in the serene setting of the Nunnington Hall garden.
Since 2013, the HandleBards theatre, charmingly chaotic, environmentally friendly cycle-powered, have clocked-up over 5000 miles cycling from venue to venue to perform Shakespeare. Described as 'uproariously funny’, get ready to be amazed at every turn as they use their bikes to power various surprises and contraptions on-stage.
“A bike! A bike! My kingdom for a bike!”
Richard, Duke of Gloucester, is determined to gain the crown of England from his brother, the Yorkist King Edward IV. He will woo, imprison, kill and persuade anyone and everyone (if needs be) to achieve his aim. But great achievement comes with great unrest. Expect a rip-roaring production, charting the rise and fall of England’s famous king.
