What’s on…

Theatre companies continue to thrill us with innovative productions of Shakespeare plays and it is good to see some new productions. We kick off our round-up with Antony and Cleopatra which will be the hot ticket of September – with Kim Cattrall and Michael Pennington lighting up the South Coast. Directed by Janet Suzman, I suggest you click to it on www.cft.org.uk
There is still chance to take a look at The Winter’s Tale and Henry V – the double bill from the much-acclaimed Propeller. Check out the company’s website before they head off for a tour in China! The team returns to Hamlet in July.
Absolutely not to be missed is the Blue Apple Theatre Company’s production of Hamlet which goes on tour in May. Check out if this leading company for able and learning-disabled people is coming to your town by popping on to the website at blueappletheatre.com
If you manage to get tickets to the Almeida Theatre’s production of King Lear, starring Jonathan Pryce, do let me know. Performances in September are already sold out!
And finally the RSC is touring a new Julius Caesar, directed by the great Greogory Doran. Featuring an all-black cast with Jeffery Kissoon as Caesar, Paterson Joseph as Brutus and Cyril Nri as Cassius, you lucky people in Cardiff, Newcastle, Aylesbury, Bradford, Salford and Norwich book your seats now!
