The Merchant of Venice, The Taming of the Shrew, & Twelfth Night
How did a company tour in Shakespeare’s day? A small group of actors, juggling a variety of roles in three or four plays, would leave London and head off on tour. The choice of play or entertainment was left to the most powerful person of the household.
Following in Shakespeare’s tradition, a company of 8 actors will offer the BOAT audiences a choice of three plays: The Merchant of Venice, The Taming of the Shrew and Twelfth Night.
In keeping with tradition – and with thrilling unpredictability – the choice of play for each performance will be put back into the hands of the most powerful members of the house: the audience.
