Shrew Stories @ The Bread & Roses Theatre

Shrew returns to the stage this February 21st-25th at The Bread & Roses Theatre.

Currently Top Pick over at London Pub Theatres – check out this cheeky interview with co-founders Velenzia Spearpoint & Paula Benson (Artistic Director) where they talk all things theatre, feminism and the Bard.

“In Get Over It Productions’ version, Shakespeare’s play is moved to 1989 … it works brilliantly. When Get Over It Productions are in town, book in advance. We highly recommend their work!”     ★★★★★

– Views From The Gods

“…reimagined to satisfy the appetite of today’s audience… a strikingly original idea to choose such a context for this play.”

– A Younger Theatre

“…you will love Get Over It Production’s adaptation of William’s most wicked wench. Full of mischief, these girls are game for playing fools, resulting in an hour of good, plain, fun.”

– Scatter of Opinion

Paula Benson (Director), Velenzia Spearpoint (Assistant Director), Rhiannon Kelly, Sassy Clyde, Heather Warne, Isabella McGough, Lesley Hayes, Melanie Blake, Sarah Jeanpierre  and Evelyn Craven.

10th Year at the Camden Fringe: The Taming of the Shrew

To celebrate ten years at the Camden Fringe we bring you our version of the Bard’s hardcore comedy – The Taming of the Shrew.

We all know the story…

A rich merchant of his day has two daughters. The younger renowned for her beauty and grace, the older for her cutting tongue and unruly behaviour. To ensure that both are married off, he proclaims that no man shall woo the younger until the elder first be wed.

Set in 1989 at the height of the rave scene, this unique setting for the story promises to deliver a perspective never seen before…

‘Sit by my side, and let the world slip, we shall ne’er be younger.’

Etcetera Theatre, 25th-28th August 2016, 8:30pm, Tickets: £8
