“With gigantic grotesque puppets and sketches that seem to range in influence from Monty Python to Samuel Beckett, this is a bill that will tickle the fancy of first-timers to the Globe and excite the imagination of fully paid-up Bard-botherers.” Independent review of Shakespeare’s Christmas Cracker
Shakespeare has always been a huge source of inspiration to Footsbarn. No-one else has observed so closely the mechanisms of human passion, from sublime love to hatred and jealousy, from absolute power and ambition to lowly servility
From the Machiavellian machinations of the court to the bacchanalian celebrations of a country wedding, from the forest of Arden to the shores of Bohemia, mankind, nature, the cosmos, all are represented in their wonderful complexity.
“Juliet on a high wire, Ophelia in a waterfall – Footsbarn’s riotous take on Shakespeare has toured the globe for 25 years. Now they’re coming home.” The Guardian, Lyn Gardner
Following the success of three commissions by London’s Globe Theatre, Footsbarn are continuing to mine this unparalleled repertoire in order to create a Shakespearean cabaret filled with humour and gravitas, where anything is possible.
A three headed Shakespeare, a casting of male Juliets, Falstaff and his ribald drinking partners, the seven ages of man, to see is to believe!
“They are genuinely bananas – that’s why I love them so much,” Dominic Dromgoole, Artistic, Director, The Globe Theatre
Created to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, The Incomplete Works is an evening full of surprises and magic, emotion and joy. A unique tribute to the undisputed master of English Theatre, Footsbarn’s latest voyage into the world of the Bard is not to be missed.
