The Merry Wives of Alvechurch

Theatre

Alvechurch Dramatic Society presents The Merry Wives of Alvechurch from Thurs Nov 23 to Sat Nov 25 in Alvechurch Village Hall.

When a young Will Shakespeare is forced to leave his wife and children in Stratford, having been accused of poaching on Sir Richard Lucy’s Charlecote estate, he joins a travelling theatre company.

Arriving in Alvechurch to perform at the local mop fair, the company find that Sir John Stafford, the local landlord, bully and womaniser, has banned players, preferring more down-to-earth pleasures.

Ignoring the protests of the local businesswomen who are organising the fair, he is only persuaded to change his mind when Will offers to write a new play in his honour.

Written by Alan Clarke and Chris Davies, the production features live music by Dave Howard and members of the Alvechurch Radical String Ensemble.

Performances start at 7.30pm. Tickets £7 (£6 conc) available from The Lounge, Alvechurch, on 0121 447 7071 or by emailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
