Then go book your tickets for Romeo & Juliet ...
POSTED BY DAVID PIBWORTH ON 21/05/2019 @ 8:00AM
We may have mentioned The Wet Mariners once or twice before, but we are very excited to have them return to The Arches this summer with their production of Romeo and Juliet ...
The Wet Mariners will be performing Romeo & Juliet at The Arches Theatre this summer!
Instead of letting you know that they will be performing this classic Shakespeare love story on Saturday 10th July at 3pm and 8pm, and that tickets are available at £15 per person ... instead of telling you all of that ... I wanted to introduce you to this talented theatre company.
This troupe is made up of professional actors who began working together during their third year at LAMDA. They continue to come together each year to form The Wet Mariners and perform Shakespeare to sell out audiences at their resident venue, The Willow Globe Theatre in Wales; and now at The Arches Theatre too!
When they aren't entertaining us with their ingenious and inventive take on the Bard's work, most of The Wet Mariners are working with leading UK companies including the National and The Globe. To give you a little insight into what they have been working on since they were last with us, please take a look below.
Amy has appeared at The Finborough Theatre in Square Rounds and is soon to start working for Kenny Wax Entertainment in the West End
James has played Edmund, alongside Sir Ian McKellen, in King Lear (West End)
Jamie has appeared at The Salisbury Playhouse, in new play The Edit
Shazia stared in Anthony and Cleopatra at The National Theatre, alongside Ralph Fiennes
Ekow has toured America in The Barber Shop Chronicles and is soon to start rehearsals for A Midsummer Night's Dream at The Globe
Kat appeared in Bleak House for Sky Arts, alongside Stephen Mangan
Sophie has continued her teaching career and completed a marathon
Jane reprised her acclaimed performance as Hamlet, for Shakespeare in the Parking Lot, NYC (and she got married!)
Brooke filmed the first series of In the Dark for The CW network, currently being aired in America and soon to arrive in the U.K
Tom has written and directed the sell out Trial TV for Secret Theatre London. Here he is as the White Rabbit in the acclaimed Alice's Adventures Underground
As you can see, we are very lucky to have this talented bunch back with us again. I can honestly say that this production of Romeo and Juliet will be one of the best you will see this year. Tickets are selling fast, so if you haven't got yours yet please do get them while you can.
"This is one experience that you do not want to miss!"
