Shakespeare's Avengers Assembleth: Age of Oberon

His mischievous sidekick Puck has brought him the Infinity Quill, a quill unlike any other, for the Infinity Quill has the power to rewrite history itself and forge a new future at the will of its master. Slightly anxious of the scenario that is unfolding, Shakespeare's greatest heroes (and Brutus), decide that they should do something to stop the oncoming apocalypse. Shakespeare's Avengers have assemblethed.

Having debuted at Edinburgh Fringe 2015, Shakespeare's Avengers Assembleth: Age of Oberon, is a fast-paced new comedy featuring fairies, Romans and a whole host of madness.

Dependence Day

Cornwall.


John Penhaligon, leader of the Cornish Independence Party, is a man on a mission; a mission to liberate his homeland - a mission to free the country he loves from a country he is at best indifferent to and at worst one he doesn't really like that much. Armed with nothing but a gut full of a passion and his own incompetence,

Penhaligon, together with his smooth-talking PR man Tom Trehevan, vows to battle against the maligned pro-together campaign. From carefully crafted TV interviews, to completely destructive publicity stunts, all aspects of a bid for independence are covered. Will Cornwall break free from English shackles? Will an entire nation rise up against the English? Will Tom ever get paid? All this and more will be answered in Dependence Day.






Shakespeare's Avengers Assembleth

Shakespeare's Avengers Assembleth was Drake's Drummers first foray into the critically acclaimed 'assembleth' series. In it the origins of SHIELD (Shakespearean Heroes International Evil Lessening Division) are detailed as William Shakespeare is tasked by her soon-to-be Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth I to write a play. A play so daring, so beautiful, so engrossing that it distracts the population of London from an upcoming Papal visit with a secret agenda. That agenda is to stop the conversion of England to protestantism when Elizabeth accedes the throne. Only one group of people can possibly deliver this play this play, in later years they will be known as his avengers, Shakespeare's Avengers, but here, Romeo, Hamlet, Opheila, Brutus and the Macbeths are forced to team up for the first time.

Shodyssey

Commissioned by New Model Theatre, for the Outpost Festival 2014. 9th - 11th October 2014.

Show Description:

Myths and legends are born from the heroic acts of great men and women; accounts of these are passed down verbally from father to son, mother to daughter and take on a life of their own. However if you trace the roots of these acts back to the 'hero', the original story will be much different from what we know today. In 'The Shodyssey' we take the audience back to ancient Troy and discover how the legends of today were really formed.
