                                                        Friday, 5th September in the grounds of Great Fosters

Experience 1000 years of England's history in 100 minutes of music, poetry, songs and silliness. Mad and Merry Monarchs will be performed by the Mad Dogs and Englishmen Theatre Company.

The show will discover the colourful and crazy episodes of history, throwing new light on whether Alfred really did burn the cakes or was he having a crafty smoke behind the bike sheds? and how did King John lose the crown jewels in the Wash? If you can't name our rulers in the right order, or the difference between William the Conqueror and William Rufus but you don't want school history lessons, this is the show for you!

Already proving to be a popular alternative to Shakespeare this "right royal romp through history" will be performed in the gardens of Great Fosters on Friday 5th September. Bring a picnic and soak up the atmosphere of this hilarious show.

"It is as fresh as it is funny. Altogether as sweet a slice of theatrical trickery as one could wish for" The Cornishman on 'Twelfth Night ' last year's show.

"Mad Dogs and Englishmen have built a reputation for high energy, physical theatre and have developed a real talent for comedy. They also know how to bring a classic story to life and make it relevant to today's world - the result is a show that's genuinely engaging and impossible to ignore". BBC Shropshire.
