Shakespeare’s fools are taking to the stage for one final evening of tomfoolery. And each of them have a story to tell.
Tonight, the outsiders are taking centre stage. Through wild physical comedy, whimsical wordplay and enchanting songs, Riddlestick chart the metamorphoses of Shakespeare’s fools, from the tumbling court jester to the cynical observer of society’s ills. Whether you’re a Bottom or a Feste, this is a party for all fellows of infinite jest.
FOOLS had two work-in-progress performances in July 2018 at The Room Above, Bristol, as part of Bristol Shakespeare Festival. We are aiming to develop this show further for touring in 2020.
