"4 actors, 4 bicycles, 40 characters and a 1000+ mile adventure."

After our hugely successful inaugural tour in 2013, the four-strong, all-male HandleBards company are back on their bikes and cycling the UK in June, July and August 2014, before setting out across Europe. On just four bicycles we will carry all the necessary set, props, costumes and camping equipment to perform two of Shakespeare's greatest plays – 'Macbeth' and 'The Comedy Of Errors'.

The HandleBards is Shakespeare done differently - using bikes to power various surprises and contraptions on-stage, whilst playing ALL the parts in Director James Farrell's wild 1930s indie-folk romp.

We'll soon be announcing tour dates and locations. In the meantime you can find out all about last year here, or watch a short video here.
