Shakespeare is not just for old theatres or the year 12 English Curriculum. It is for the masses to enjoy in a pub whilst having a few beers and dinner!
Developer by Chris Huntly-Turner and James Haxby, and supported by a range of quality performers, the folks at @bardwork have put together a modern version of Much Ado about Nothing.
They travel around Sydney’s pubs and perform their plays in and amongst the beer drinking crowds. The Oaks was the perfect venue for this and we liked that throughout the play, people were served food, you could head to the bar and grab a drink and this did not distract them in any way.
The performers were brilliant and we love how the play was adapted to suit the venue and also the modern world. They included the crowd in their interactions and we loved the additions of music to keep in engaging and fun!
We thoroughly enjoyed it! Keep an eye out this and if you get a chance – check it out! Get in fast though, historically, they’ve been sellouts! The Oaks hotel often host great events from wine or beer tastings, cocktail making or even food pairings.
