Battle of the Bastards

Show Info
Strap on your codpiece. Complete with sword fights, eye-gouging and Elizabethan cussing, one man slashes the story of King Lear into bawdy and sublimely entertaining tragi-comedy. If you like Shakespeare you should probably go. If you don’t like Shakespeare you should definitely go.


A polished, spellbinding performance from someone who knows how to work the crowd to perfection… refreshing brilliant fun.” Nelson Mail

"Battle of the Bastards is intelligent, raucously funny and highly recommended." Theatreview
