The HandleBards are proud to present their first ever all-female troupe, who, on eight very-sore legs, will tackle all 26 characters in Shakespeare’s epic tale of two lovers who’ve everything stacked against them.
The HandleBards perform Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it before – fast-paced, irreverent and bicycle powered. Since 2013, they’ve pedalled over 5,000 miles across the world, carrying all their set, props and costumes by bicycle alone.
Romeo and Juliet might traditionally be a tragedy – but the four-strong HandleBards are described by none other than Sir Ian McKellen as “uproariously funny”, so be sure to expect tragedy with a twist. www.handlebards.com
