About The Two Noble Kinsmen

How long is forever? When the imprisoned Palamon and Arcite vow eternal friendship, they don’t expect that anything will come between them. But then from their cell window they see the beautiful Emilia, and their priorities take a sudden and violent turn. In this late romance, Fletcher and Shakespeare examine love in all its fluid and complex forms.

Inspired by the play’s Morris language and references, The Two Noble Kinsmen is set in pastoral ‘Merrie England’ and brought to life with original music composed by acclaimed folk musician Eliza Carthy, and dance choreographed by Ewan Wardrop.

This production will delight the ear with words and melodies. We’ll have merry May Day capers, and I don’t know how many dances there’ll be, but methinks the more the merrier. Come along, join in, and add to the history of a play that includes some of the last words Shakespeare ever wrote for the stage.

In this gender and race-blind production, the role of Pirithous will be played by Olivier Award winner, Matt Henry.
