A Bard's Tale, the greatest plays Shakespeare never wrote. For two nights only, six improvisers from the Covert Theatre take to the stage, pay homage to good Queen Bess and then before your very eyes, improvise a play in the style of Shakespeare.
A Bard’s Tale is a show like no other and one you don't want to miss. This seriously talented cast of improvisers creates the magical world of a Shakespearean play on the spot so it is different every night.
Historians say that a lot of Shakespeare was improvised and the style of today’s improv comedy performance with its audience interaction is a lot closer to the original Shakespeare performance than many modern day interpretations.
A Bard's Tale has been performed in the NZ International Comedy Festival and the Hawaiian Improv Festival cast and this is its first performances in Whangarei. Don't miss out!
A Bard's Tale cast is CJ Le Mon, James Ting-Edwards, Mark Scott, Nik Edwards, Paul Paice and Wade Jackson.
