Shakespeare Spoof

Cowdray Heritage

The Midhurst Players are performing a Shakespeare spoof play in Buck Hall at the Cowdray Heritage site.

This will be an evening of revels in the beautiful, atmospheric Cowdray Ruins watching a Shakespeare spoof called at Merry Regiment of Women while enjoying a lovely summer buffet which is included in the ticket price.

Shakespeare’s great women and three extraordinary men meet and perform a totally contemporary play.

Lady Macbeth calls to arms five of Shakespeare’s most well-known female characters in order to voice their opinions about the quality and the impact of their roles in his plays. However, events do not go according to plan, as three of his popular male characters arrive to shake things up.

Kate and Petruchio, Romeo and Juliet, daring Henry V, plus Lady Macbeth and Cleopatra, combine to produce a mad and merry, totally irreverent but particularly apt, tribute to the greatest writer of all! A triumph of irony in the iambic – yet warm of heart. Forsooth play on!
