Bard's War of the Roses at Abbey
THROUGHOUT the weekend of 11-12 August at Buckland Abbey, Garden and Estate, the National Trust property near Yelverton, the Elysium Theatre Company will be staging 'The Wars of the Roses', an ambitious combination of Shakespeare's beautiful language and some action-packed battle re-enactments, spanning eight of Shakespeare's history plays.
The project is supported by the Royal Shakespeare Company's Open Stages scheme.
Robin Simpson, Chief Executive of Voluntary Arts says 'this project is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the creativity and talent in amateur arts groups across the UK.'
History and theatre, language and action will be woven together into one gripping narrative.
