Dartmouth Shakespeare Week Returns!


ast year (and some of this year too!) was, to say the least, ‘orrible! So many


events cancelled, and not just the Festivals. Weddings, celebrations of all kinds, happy arrivals and sad farewells – everything suffered and are, in some cases, still suffering. However, Inn Theatre were


determined that, allowing for circumstance, 2021’s Dartmouth Shakespeare Week would go ahead. And so it is. We knew there would be a tremendous appetite for live entertainment, but it had to be safe and it needed to be fun. We made the difficult decision not to hold this year’s production at Dartmouth Castle, primarily because of the limited space in to which we would need to fit the audience. So we started our search. And, after quite some time, we found what we considered to be the perfect replacement for Dartmouth Castle. It was a wide-open space; it had facilities; it had potential and the Parish Council had the foresight to agree with us, for which we are hugely grateful. Stoke Fleming Recreation Ground was ideal – and it was a space with which we were very familiar. We have worked hard to make this year’s production as safe as possible and to that end we are working in collaboration with the Society of London Theatres, UK Theatre and Visit Britain and have achieved their kite-mark for the ‘See It Safely’ initiative, where we will be adhering to all the most current regulations, in force at the time we go live in Stoke Fleming. Everyone involved with Inn


Theatre are absolutely cock-a-hoop to be back treading the boards


and bringing you a play that is the closest Shakespeare ever came to writing an out-and-out farce: ‘The Comedy of Errors’. We thought that, after the year we’ve all just endured, it would be brilliant to give everyone the chance of a good laugh! And you will: two sets of identical twins, mistaken identities, jealous lovers, love-lorn servants, a mad doctor and jewellery. What more could you possibly ask for on a balmy summer’s evening? It will feel a little


different this year though.


We have the facilities but what can’t do is provide any seating for our audience in the field. So please, bring your picnics by all means; bring your tipple of choice; bring your family and bring your sense of humour BUT, above all, bring something to sit on…even if it’s just a blanket or a rug. There will be plenty of room for everyone and room a-plenty to spread yourselves out and feel as safe as you need. We sincerely hope that you will


enjoy this year’s return to live, open-air theatre as much as we have loved being back, learning lines, building sets, erecting stages and lighting and having the most fun it’s possible to have…but that’s just us.


Next year, 2022, will be our, and


Dartmouth Shakespeare Week’s, twentieth anniversary and we sincerely hope (no offence to Stoke Fleming or the lovely supportive people who live there!) we will back in our ‘home’ at Dartmouth Castle, where we promise you a suitably spectacular, celebratory production. Twenty years, in the greater scheme of things, may not seem that long, but in that time we’ve toured numerous plays to many and varied venues; taken our 2017 production of ‘Othello’ to London; won awards for our production of new work and, above all that, we’ve made new friends, helped youngsters discover theatre (and get enthused by Shakespeare) and, as has been said by many, many people who have seen our productions, given our audiences a better understanding and deeper enjoyment of Shakespeare and his work. We’re looking forward


to seeing you at this year’s production and, if you so wish, it would be great if you could leave a few words on our Facebook page (search Friends of the Inn Theatre Company), telling us what you liked, loved or loathed (we’re


tough, we can take constructive criticism!) about this year’s play. ‘The Comedy of Errors’ runs from 27th


– 31st July at Stoke


Fleming Recreation Ground from 7.30pm. Tickets are available from our web-site www. theinntheatrecompany.co.uk where you can also catch up on past and future productions and current news.
