Open-Air Shakespeare at Kentwell Hall
Open-air theatre at Kentwell Hall, Suffolk
Friday 29th to Sunday 31st July 2016
We are delighted to announce we will be performing William Shakespeare's classic plays AS YOU LIKE IT and ROMEO & JULIET at the magnificent Kentwell Hall in Suffolk.
This year’s performances will be played in the open air on the Cedar Lawn.
This area is within the moat and uses either the mellow red Tudor brickwork
of the house, or the superb vista of the gardens as some of the most amazing
theatrical backcloths you will ever see!
Kentwell is not a ‘stately home’ but very much a lived-in and loved family
home, something it has been for over 500 years. The public see much of
the House, including rooms used by the family - usually with obvious signs
It is also a project - for 35 years now a non-stop effort to save this
beautiful House, re-create its Gardens and form a traditional style Farm.
In this sense it is very much a House of today, even if some of the works
have accentuiated the House's Tudor origins.
