WHAT'S ON in APRIL

Debs Newbold

DEBS NEWBOLD
"Romeo & Juliet Retold"
FRIDAY 26 APRIL 2019
£7 admission

Debs Newbold, Principal Storyteller for Shakespeare’s Globe, catapults her audience into the torrid streets of Verona in this poignant, emotional and often uproarious re-imagining of Shakespeare's tale of starcrossed lovers. Originally commissioned by the Globe theatre, this remarkable reworking will immerse you in both Shakespeare's incomparable verse and the poetic, irreverent storytelling that is uniquely Debs' own. A multiple sell-out at Sidmouth Festival and the Hay Literary Festival and toured worldwide, this intimate retelling will get deep under your skin.



STORYTELLING

The hunger for narrative is a basic human instinct. Stories help us make sense of the world and give structure and order to our everyday lives.  They tell us what is important, what is not and give us a way to connect people's individual experiences to those of others. They help us identify with universal truths. Stories are a way we put a human face on the world, which is something we have always needed and valued. Some of our most profound decisions are made emotionally, not rationally. Stories tap into emotions better than anything else.
