The newly-formed Antic Disposition Theatre Company put a brilliantly funny slant on the Bard's work.
This extremely talented group consisted of Sarah Barron, Helen Evans, Matthew Stevens and Nicholas White. They were ably accompanied on the piano by Jonathan Newman and what a time they had.
With contributions written by Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie to Alan Melville, Cole Porter and the Bard, it was still several steps within the reverence zone.

What an education it was to be reminded of those everyday phrases written by Shakespeare and, to cap it all, even compulsory audience participation in a sing-song, pantomime-style with, of course, both halves of the audience winning.
