Shakespeare plays and thespian egos collide in this brand-new comedy by David Spicer which would have the Bard himself turning in his grave.
Following a series of multi-award winning (six OnComm Awards, Scenesaver award for Best Ensemble) online plays throughout the pandemic, The Northern Comedy Theatre Company has adapted its much-loved Doing Shakespeare for the stage and is bringing it to the Bridewell Theatre this November. Doing Shakespeare follows fictional company The Felching Players as they agree to stage a Shakespeare play but don’t think to agree on which one should be (or not to be) before chaos ensues. Steven Arnold, best known as for his fifteen-year stint on Coronation Street as Ashley Peacock, will join the cast of six actors in David Spicer’s farcical fusion of Shakespeare’s classics.
The Northern Comedy Theatre originally produced the Doing series of zoom-based online performances at the start of the March 2020 lockdown, with titles such as Doing Whodunnit and Doing The Book Club, as well as Doing Shakespeare, earning them six OnComms awards and a special ONEOFF award from The Offies.
