Two Plays By Wimbledon's Oldest Amateur Theatre Group Will Make You Think

Coming soon: '(The Absurdity and Failure of) Life After Shakespeare'

Wimbledon's longest running amateur theatre group, the Carlton Theatre Group, is staging 'The Absurdity and Failure of Life after Shakespeare' in August.


The show combines two short plays into a bigger production to comment on how people deal with failure in a society full of pressure to perform.


It promises to bring a unique vision to 2013's modern classic Bull, Mike Bartlett's ferocious portrayal of workplace politics, harassment and bullying, and to Michael Green's Henry the Tenth (Part Seven), a hilarious riff on contemporary Shakespeare performance where seemingly everything that can go wrong will go wrong.


Directed by Jake Mills, Bull is written by Mike Bartlett, and Henry the Tenth (Part Seven) is written by Michael Green.


It takes place from Tuesday 6 - Saturday 10 August (7.45pm and Saturday matinee 3pm) at the Colour House Theatre, Colliers Wood, SW19 2RD.
