The Edinburgh Fringe One-Weeker 2018 – Shakespeare for Breakfast, 20th August 2018

Shakespeare for BreakfastI thought I’d make our earliest start of the week on the second morning whilst we were still not that tired – and it’s something we’re really looking forward to, Shakespeare for Breakfast, at C Venues – C on Chambers Street, at 10:00 on Monday 20th. Here’s the official description: “The Bardic Breakfasters are back! C’s sensational Shakespearience returns, for its 27th sell-out year, with free coffee and croissants! A pleasing plethora of pentameter, puns and pastry. Perfect for hardened fans of the Bard and blank verse virgins alike. This year they take on the classic Taming of the Shrew. ‘A bouncy and boisterous take on Willie’s work’ (List). ‘Well worth getting out of bed for’ (Independent). ‘No holds Bard ( ‘Irreverent humour… clever’ (Stage). ‘Side-splitting… glorious’ ( ‘Full of fun’ ( ‘Sizzling’ (Scottish Daily Express). Free coffee and croissants! Book early.”

This will be the third time we will be seeing this fantastic company give us their unique slant on the Big Bard. Last year it was Macbeth, the year before A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and this year it’s to be Taming of the Shrew. You just know it’s going to be ridiculously funny. And a free croissant. Check back shortly after 11am to see just how funny it was. By then the next preview blog should be available to read too.

Absolutely brilliant as always. There aren’t enough shoe puns to shoo in (geddit!) We laughed for the entire hour. You must see this show!
