Shakespeare at Pensthorpe

12 Jun 2021

The Handlebards “Macbeth”

Pedalling from venue to venue with all of their set, props and costumes on the back of their bikes, the HandleBards are a four-strong troupe of actors who are spending the summer bringing environmentally sustainable Shakespeare to venues across the UK, and they are coming to Pensthorpe!

Join the all-female troupe here at Pensthorpe, on Saturday 12th June 2021, for a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s classic.

Forget the tears and tragedy – this is a frantic, delirious, full-of-beans show like you’ve never seen before.

This is an outdoor production, so please bring a chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!

Due to popular demand an extra 50 tickets have been released – subject to availability, so be quick! You can book your tickets here

“Explodes with energy and is a genuine treat from start to finish”
