About The Upstart Crow

‘A hit, a hit, an implausible hit!’ (Independent) Ben Elton’s five-star Olivier award-nominated stage production of the critically acclaimed and much adored BBC sitcom THE UPSTART CROW, returns to the West End stage.

Starring ‘the genius’ (Daily Mail) David Mitchell who will once more don the bald wig and bardish coddling pouch in his iconic characterisation of Will Shakespeare and Gemma Whelan who ‘winningly reprises her role’ (Evening Standard) as the sweet and fragrant Kate.

‘Tis 1605 and England’s greatest playwright is in trouble. Will Shakespeare has produced just two plays; Measure for Measure, which according to King James was incomprehensible bollingbrokes by any measure, and All’s Well That End’s Well which didn’t even end well. Will desperately needs to maketh a brilliant new play to bolster his reputation and avoid being cast aside by King and country. But Will’s personal life is encountering more dramatic twists and turns than any theatrical story he can conjure. How the futtock can a Bard be expected to find a plot for a play whilst his daughters run amok and his house is used as refuge for any old waif and stray. As time runs out, can Will hold on to his dream of being recognised now and for all time, as indisputably the greatest writer that ever lived, or will family woes thwart Will’s chances of producing his masterwork?

For a strictly limited season ‘the most consistently funny and expertly staged comedy since One Man Two Guvnors’ (Guardian) sets the stage alight once more until 3 December 2022 at the Apollo Theatre.
