Photo Flash: First Look at THE HERBAL BED at Royal & Derngate
The first show in Royal & Derngate's Shakespeare season is THE HERBAL BED, Peter Whelan's imagining of the life of William Shakespeare's daughter. The production runs now through 27 February 2016 before continuing on tour. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
A powerful exposé of the contradiction between human desire and social convention, this moving and uplifting play provides a beautiful evocation of life in Shakespearian England. Directed by James Dacre in its first major revival since its acclaimed Royal Shakespeare Company premiere in 1994, the production is a collaboration with English Touring Theatre and Rose Theatre Kingston.
THE HERBAL BED reunites the design team behind 2013's UK Theatre Award-winning production of Peter Whelan's THE ACCRINGTON PALS.
THE HERBAL BED tours to Cambridge Arts Theatre, Liverpool Playhouse, Exeter Northcott Theatre, Brighton Theatre Royal, The Lowry, Salford, New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth, Theatre Royal Bath and Oxford Playhouse, ahead of performances at the Rose Theatre Kingston from 26 April - 7 May 2016.
