Shakespeare is back! The Handlebards – Romeo and Juliet

Featured

The Handlebards are back this year with their rendition of Romeo and Juliet.

The HandleBards are the world’s first cycling theatre company. Before touring their “seriously silly” production of Romeo and Juliet around the world, they pedalled it 1500 miles around the UK by bicycle, with all the necessary set, props and costume in tow. Now, the show is back by popular demand – and, in usual HandleBards style, you can expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.

Join the HandleBards’ all-female troupe at the Broadway Arts Festival for Romeo and Juliet as you’ve never seen it before!

And what’s the play about? Well – Romeo and Juliet fall in love, despite the fact that both their families hate each other. Hilarity ensues… Well, sort of!
