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.
