In 2017, Bowler Crab began touring shortened versions of their past productions to schools, festivals, private parties, corporate events and as dining experiences in the form of 'pocket productions'.

 

Bowler Crab then became the official resident theatre company of The Mermaid Inn following the sell-out performances of the 'pocket productions' of Macbeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream (Dining) and Romeo & Juliet. Since then, both Othello and The Merchant of Venice have played to packed houses at The Mermaid as full-length performanceas on tours around Kent, Sussex and London.

Macbeth Dining Experience at The Mermaid Inn

 

Fame, glory, love, power, wealth, sex, happiness … but at what cost? How far will man go to get his deservings? Bloody murder, dark magic, gory ghosts, suffocating madness and brutal war shade this tragic love story as one of Shakespeare’s regicidal villain learns the hard way that “blood will have blood” …

 

Join Bowler Crab as they return to The Mermaid Inn once again as part of the Rye Arts Festival; ‘Dining with Macbeth’ is a shortened version of the play in which the actors perform scenes between each course, interacting with the tables in the space to create an immersive dining experience. Bowler Crab’s last three ‘pocket productions’ at The Mermaid Inn sold out a month in advance, thus booking ahead is recommended. If you’ve already seen Bowler Crab’s 2013 stage production of Macbeth or their touring pocket ‘Interpreting Macbeth’ workshop, rest assured this piece is completely different with a new design, new actors, new scenes, and a linear plotline.
