Not-to-be-Missed All-Female 'Taming of the Shrew' comes to Clapham!

Not-to-be-Missed All-Female 'Taming of the Shrew' comes to Clapham!

| by Editor | Posted in Balham News, Balham Arts

Following their sold-out run at their 10th Camden Fringe Get Over It Productions return to The Bread & Roses Theatre with their all-female version of the Bard’s hardcore comedy. Set in 1989 at the height of the rave culture this promises to be a Shrew like no other - let it roll.

After a sell out run at The Camden Fringe 2016, Get Over It Productions have been invited to fill the houses once more at the Bread & Roses Theatre 21st-25th February 2017. “In Get Over It Productions' version, Shakespeare's play is moved to 1989 … it works brilliantly.

You may remember we wen to see their production at The Bedford, Balham, of The Vagina Monologues – and if this promises to be even a smidgen of how good that was we’re all over it!

Founded by a group of core members in 2004 and headed by Paula Benson and Velenzia Spearpoint, Get Over It Productions are an all female ensemble who hit the mark time and time again with productions steeped in the traditions of physical theatre and the avant-garde.  

Specialising mainly in performing all-female versions of Shakespeare, previous productions include; a Glam-Rock inspired Macbeth (The Roundhouse) a silent movie influenced Romeo and Juliet (Lion and Unicorn) and Victorian gothic The Tempest (The Cockpit/ Etcetera Theatre/Bread and Roses) to name but a few. Get Over It are thrilled to have original cast return for this early 2017 run:

Paula Benson (Director),

Velenzia Spearpoint (Assistant Director),

Rhiannon Kelly, Sassy Clyde, Heather Warne, Isabella McGough, Lesley Hayes, Melanie Blake and Evelyn Craven.

They are also delighted to welcome Sarah Jeanpierre, Faye Barber and Katie Joyce into the cast.
