Henry IV Part 1 – Shakespeare meets Star Trek!

Captain’s personal log, star date 1402.8. I am increasingly troubled by continuing news of rebellion brewing on Vulcan. The latest intelligence from our informants on the planet confirms that the rebel faction has been treating in secret with the Klingons and Andorians and an unprecedented alliance appears to be forming between the three peoples that poses a critical threat to the Federation. I am also concerned by reports that my daughter, a Lieutenant on this starship, has been confined to her quarters for the third time due to drunkenness and dereliction of duty. She seems to be spending an inordinate amount of time in the ship’s bar, the Targ’s Head, with Lieutenant Falstaff and the other engineering crew.

Yes, this is Shakespeare meets Star Trek in Eastbourne!

Our annual outdoor Bard in the Yard production for 2023 promises to be a night to remember!

Come with us as we bring you the Bard as never before. His comic history of England at the times of the War of the Roses will be transposed to a future time and a different world when Captain Henry faces rebellion from many quarters – not least it would seem from within his own family!

Outside in the Muritai School Yard (inside if the weather doesn’t come to the party). Dress up warmly – futuristic costume optional!

7:30 pm 23, 24 & 25 February and 2, 3 & 4 March.

Tickets will be on sale through Eventfinda in late January.
