Shakespeare’s Fool

Tortive Theatre Company presents Shakespeare’s Fool at the Market Theatre in Ledbury.

Will ‘Cavaliero’ Kempe was one of the finest performers of the Elizabethan age. Gentleman player, juggling jester, headmaster of Morris dancers and London’s finest clown, until… he fell out with Will ‘git-face’ Shakespeare.

Join Kempe on the streets of London as he gives his final performance to an audience of a mouse and a marotte and tells the tale of his life, his rise to stardom and what really happened between him and William Shakespeare.

Now in its third year of touring, Shakespeare’s Fool has delighted audiences and critics alike, with five-star reviews, performances at three international festivals, and sell-out runs across the UK.

A bittersweet tale, told by an idiot.
