Play Nicely Theatre Company is presenting an outdoor theatre show in Keyston for what promises to be the perfect treat for all of the family.

The company's new 60-minute production, The Mechanicals Present Either Julius Caesar or Macbeth, is a comedic adaptation of two of Shakespeare’s finest plays.

The show is taking place at Keyston Farm on Friday, August 19 and Saturday, August 20, with Julius Caesar starting at 1:30pm and Macbeth commencing at 6pm.

Director Asia Osborne said: "We’re so happy to be on the road with this fun show. It had a short run mid-Covid, but we are excited to bring two versions this time with an exciting new cast."

The show is suitable for ages eight plus, and the public can expect to see a different take on Shakespeare’s classic tragedies, presented by Midsummer Mechanicals Quince, Bottom, Starveling, Flute, Snout and Snug.

Expect water balloons, a five-foot cardboard dagger, a dog, lots of laughs, and tons of heart, full of family fun and silliness.

Tickets start from £12 and can be purchased from Play Nicely Theatre’s website www.playnicelytheatre.com.
