Set in New Romantic Soho this production features several of the youngest members of Thame Players to reflect the impetuosity and bravery of the youthful lovers. It uses modern costumes and settings to illuminate the wonders of this brilliant Shakespeare comedy about despair, hope and love at first sight. The text shines through this fast paced romp giving us some of the greatest poetry and most hilarious comic moments ever seen on the English Stage.
