Bowler Crab bring you our twelfth full production to date: The Merchant of Venice, on tour across Sussex, Kent and London this June & July!
The Merchant of Venice is an edgy comedy filled with romance, laughter and the odd tear. Three love stories roll into one as we follow young lovers on a voyage to woo the women of their dreams; but how dark will the tale turn when their friend must pay their debts? How accountable can friendship be when wagered with of a pound of human flesh? A comedy full of love, riddles, disguises, song and dance but also one that questions the topics of race, class, worth, gender, religion and, ultimately … revenge.
Our biggest tour to date, with stops at our usual haunts: The Mermaid Inn (Rye), The Stables Theatre (Hastings), St John's Centre (Bexhill) and The Hen & Chickens (Islington, London); along with new tour stops: The Trinity Theatre (Tunbridge Wells), The Rialto Theatre (Brighton) and St John's URC (Edenbridge) and, of course, multiple stops at our own exclusive outdoor venue, the C16th Half House Farm (Three Oaks).

We are sorry to announce that we will not be appearing at The Eastbourne Under Ground Theatre as advertised due to the venue unexpectedly closing down (we are as disappointed as you are). Appologies for any inconvenience, the circumstances are beyond our control; we recommend coming to St John's Centre Bexhill instead.
Never fear, we’re still going on #tonight! According to #weather reports, it’s going to clear up and be nice and dry for our 7.30pm performance at #halfhousefarm ! Tickets no longer available online but go on sale on the door tonight from 6.30pm.
