Tring and Whitstable

This week the Shrews were originally going to be in Romania...but sadly complications meant we were unable to go.  However the Globe managed to organise two one nighters to keep us Shrewing...

Backstage at Tring

On tuesday we went to Tring Park School for the Performing Arts which was Arts Ed. back in the day I think.  We had a very enthusiastic audience of students and locals and once again the weather smiled on us.

I think this might be the only time we perform to rows of students in pajamas and onsies under duvets...but watch this space...

Whitstable Ahoy!
Oh we do like to Shrew beside the seaside
Fish and Chips by the front

Yesterday we went to lovely Whitstable and the amazingly cute Playhouse Theatre...which proudly boasts a beautiful balcony despite being the size of your average studio theatre. 

behold the balcony!

We were made very welcome, and the audience were so enthusiastic we managed an extra curtain call.

Afterwards Leah met Simon Paisley Day at the Stage Door, who lives in Whitstable...and played Petruccio in last year's Taming of the Shrew at the Globe - I think it's always a bit intimidating to think that another actor who has played the same role has been watching you - but she took it in her shrew-stride...

Next stop...Malta!

  1. So glad you liked us - we LOVED you! I could easily become a #shrewpie. Globe productions are always special - Monday son and I are going to a screening of Twelfth Night, and in August, The Tempest. Not that we're fans, or anything.


thank you!
