Newcastle Great North Museum: Hancock
Sunday 14th August 2016
Elle Dillon-Reams, Lianne Harvey, Lotte Tickner, Lizzie Muncey
With comedies and tragedies galore;
Four actors upon bikes are wont to ride,
With legs exhausted and with bottoms sore.
A journey thorough bush and thorough briar,
On a-roads, b-roads, cycle-paths we steer.
On pedalled steeds we stow all we require –
Set, props and costumes, scripts and camping gear.
Hey ho! The wind and rain may slow our ride,
Our chains may bear the whips and scorns of grime,
But this dry-witted, wet quartet provide
A stonking, bonkers, entertaining time.
So join this ped’ling Shakespeare troupe anon,
The HandleBards: ride on, dear friends, ride on.
Tickets: £10, £8 concessions (plus booking fee)
Outdoor performance: bring a picnic, chair/rug and warm clothes
