Join us for the tall tale of the clown Will Kempe’s audacious dance of over 125 miles from London to Norwich in 1599.
Never afraid to upstage his peers, Kempe began his journey to raise money and publicity after he fell out with Shakespeare’s company. From the grotty dive of London’s South Bank to the muddy potholes of the fens, Will was joined by an assortment of locals, including an unfit butcher and a country lass who kept up with him for a full mile.
Tripping lightly through history with physical comedy and extracts from Shakespeare, this show pays homage to a man who followed the beat of a slightly different drum to everyone else.
