About Bowler Crab
Copyright, all rights reserved 2015
Bowler Crab is a UK based theatre company which specialises in Shakespearean performance with a goal to complete the canon. Founded in 2013 by Artistic Director Stephen John, Bowler Crab had performed their first five productions by 2014, all open air exclusively at Half House Farm in East Sussex.
In 2015, the company began touring their summer productions to indoor venues in Sussex. After a 2016 summer production, the autumn saw their first solely indoor production which toured across Sussex and Kent.
In 2017, alongside producing summer and winter tours (which extended the touring reach to London venues), Bowler Crab began touring shortened versions of their plays to schools, festivals, corporate events and as dining experiences (all available now for hire).
Bowler Crab also became the official resident theatre company of The Mermaid Inn in 2017. The 600 year old, Mermaid Inn in Rye (famous for having Shakespeare’s company visit them in 1597) today hosts Bowler Crab’s full touring performances, ‘pocket performances’ and dining experiences year round.
