Opera Anywhere presents Gilbert & Sullivan’s MIKADO
Friday 7th September at 7.00pm
Set in Japan, The Mikado presents a tangled web of love. Nanki-Poo, the son of the Mikado, flees in search of his true love, YumYum, to avoid marrying a much older suitor. Yum-Yum, however, is betrothed to Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner, against her will.
Things, as you can see, are complicated! But can everything be righted before someone loses their head? Expect high jinx, lots of energy and clever wordplay as all is revealed
Cotswold Players present - SWISH Strong Women In Shakespeare
Thursday, Friday and Saturday – 11th to 13th October at 7.30 pm
SWISH was originally the Players’ highly successful contribution to the first Stroud Shakespeare Festival held in Stratford Park in May 2018. A team of actors and directors performed an open-air series of short scenes from the History plays (including Henry V, Henry VI & Richard III) celebrating famous speeches from strong women.
For this production, we will add a second half consisting of linked scenes from Much Ado About Nothing, with the evergreen sparring of Beatrice and Benedick, and The Merry Wives of Windsor, with the gulling of the lecherous Falstaff by the redoubtable Mistress Ford and Mistress Page. SWISH ….... again promises an entertaining evening of the best of Shakespeare, telling the powerful stories of these remarkable women in some of the wonderful verse and prose that the English language has to offer.
