Possibly one of the best things to come out of lockdown…What happens when three Handlebards find themselves cooped up in a flat together for three months? A super off-the-wall Handlebards retelling of Romeo and Juliet, that’s what.

Unhinged, laugh-out-loud and bonkers, this outdoor production takes place in the Courtyard at the Lawrence Batley Theatre this August. Pack up a picnic, round up the family and prepare for a socially distanced, live and exciting Shakespeare performance.

An unhinged, laugh-out-loud live outdoor production.

The Handlebards are a troupe of cycling actors who carry all of their set, costume and props around on their bikes. Connoisseurs of outdoor theatre, the company perform energetic and environmentally sustainable Shakespeare plays across the globe. For those who are familiar with The Handlebards’ work – this isn’t their usual outing – but you can expect the same hilarious and charming style.

Pack up a picnic, round up the family and prepare for a socially distanced performance.

Audiences are invited to bring their own chairs, blankets and cushions, however, the theatre will provide chairs too. Running time is 90 minutes without an interval.

Join the HandleBards’ at the Lawrence Batley Theatre for Romeo and Juliet as you’ve never seen it before.
