AN ALL-male performance of a Shakespeare classic will take place at a lakeside setting at a North Yorkshire Jacobean hall.

Kiplin Hall, between Scorton and Northallerton, is hosting the Lord Chamberlain’s Men on Friday, August 22, with their 10th anniversary production of Romeo and Juliet.

For 400 years the tale of Shakespeare’s star-cross’d lovers has gripped audiences with its blend of passion, excitement and heart-stopping thrills.

Audience members can bring a picnic before enjoying the performance.

Mark Puddle, of the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, says Romeo and Juliet is the play that people always want to see.

“The play’s eternal themes of love, honour and revenge still resonate with modern audiences,” he said.

“What could be more perfect for a summer’s evening than a classical telling of this immortal love story set against the background of one of North Yorkshire’s most beautiful historic houses and gardens”

Gates open at 6pm for picnics and the performance starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £15 for adults, £13 for concessions and £8 for children.

Tickets are now on sale from Kiplin Hall on 01748-818178, or info@kiplinhall.co.uk
