It is amazing how the “pop-up theatre” itself has been constructed in a couple of weeks in front of the palace whose familiar outline is visible from the Elizabethan village. Indeed, if you want to make a day of it and visit both the palace and the theatre you can buy a joint ticket. Otherwise you can just opt to go to one of the four productions running this summer: Romeo and Juliet, Midsummer Night’s Dream, Macbeth, and Richard III.
As for the show itself, the performances by the actors and actresses were on the whole good. I thought the acting, dancing and singing by Jake Quickenden (Berger), Claude (Paul Wilkins) and Daisy Wood Davis (Sheila), was very impressive.
William Mannering said, “I am thrilled to have the opportunity of playing this iconic role in front of a home crowd in Oxfordshire. I grew up just a few miles from Blenheim Palace, always aware of its place in our nation’s history; I can think of no finer setting for the telling of this rich and powerful story. Our pop-up Rose Theatre is a building that Shakespeare himself would recognise and one in which he would feel quite at home.”
