A Strange Tale to be told at Shakespeare North Playhouse

Imaginarium Theatre is thrilled to be staging Strange Tale; the second full length play in the opening season of the Cockpit Stage at Shakespeare North Playhouse this 2nd – 5th November.

Drawing on factual historical research, with lashings of artistic license, and an abundance of fun, this zany and fabulously funny new play from Rob Brannen invents an exciting new mythos of Prescot and its historic connection to the Bard.

Imaginarium Theatre present this new comic play that explores Shakespeare’s links to Prescot through a time-travelling adventure that blows apart the myths, the man and the missing years.

Will Shakespeare is in Prescot, but who knows why or how. His Tudor days seem far away from the here and now. He needs the help of locals, as time is running out – his memory is fading, his writing future is in doubt!

Who are the Shakespeare detectives, and how can they help? How does a mysterious portal in the barber shop where the Prescot Playhouse once stood, provide a clue to getting Will home? Who is Lord Strange, and why is he so extraordinarily strange? And why does Will spend so much time at the pub?

Join the bard at the bar for an unforgettable night of music, mystery, and mayhem.

Imaginarium are a local creative company who host spectacular productions of Shakespeare plays and literary classics in parks, gardens and great halls across the North West.

​Imaginarium Theatre is an Associate Company of the Shakespeare North Playhouse

Running from the 2nd- 5th November at Shakespeare North Playhouse. https://shakespearenorthplayhouse.co.uk/event/strange-tale/
