Double Will will delight as Petersfield Shakespeare Festival’s alfresco double bill
SURE to be a hot ticket this summer is the world premiere of the Shakespeare-inspired Double Will in Petersfield.
A highlight of the exciting annual Petersfield Shakespeare Festival, this is an evening of two short plays performed alfresco in the beautiful grounds at Bedales School.
This is the fifth season for the festival, set up by the school’s head of drama in July 2012.
Since then it has gone from strength to strength, putting on some memorable productions.
In the double bill, on July 25 and 26, at 7.45pm, with tickets now on sale, Shakespeare’s Lost Women charmingly tells, through dialogue and song, the stories of some of the Bard’s forgotten female characters. From the pen of Chichester writer Greg Mosse, with music by John Gleadall, this will be performed by Harriet Henson (pictured) who returns to the festival for her fourth season.
In The Buried Moon, playwright Laura Turner uses a 21st century Lincolnshire setting to explore the youthful relationship between Miranda and Caliban, charting its twists and turns.
This play had a critically acclaimed run at The Rose Playhouse, Bankside, in April, with five-star reviews.
