19th MAY - A SIGNIFICANT DATE!

YES, of course, we all know about the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan and, of course, the FA Cup Final as Chelsea and Manchester United dutifully line up to follow it.
But NO, I am going back nearly 500 years to the execution of ANNE BOLEYN on 19th May 1536




.
Was she really guilty of adultery? Mark Smeaton admitted to having had an affair with her, as did others. But let us not forget, back then there were some quite ingenious ways of extracting confessions. Just visit The Tower of London and see some examples. I promise they will make your blood curdle.
To be honest, I never did trust that Oliver Cromwell chap - something about him!
Anyway, if you want to learn more and be royally entertained, just book our fabulous "Henry VIII" play.
It's my favourite of our ten productions, and I guarantee you will love it.
Fifteen characters are portrayed by two brilliant actors, and you will have the opportunity to partake in an execution, not yours, I hasten to add!
As I leave you, take a look at some of the pictures from the show.
Until next time, Albert.....

NO COMPLAINTS THIS TIME.

Now it is May and the sun is shining. How could I possibly find anything to moan about?
Although the schools have no money, it seems the parents do, and they are looking for shows for their kids' birthday parties.
Well, look no further. Aesop's Theatre has the most popular children's plays for ages two to twelve: and they are affordable. Give me a call or send me an email and I will quote a fee to meet your budget.
"Gingerbread Man" for the young ones is the most popular production but, if you prefer a bit of puppetry, go for "The Ugly Duckling", or if friendship is high on the agenda, "The Hare & the Tortoise" fits the bill perfectly.
They say " action speaks louder than words" but, in this case let it be pictures.
I will leave you with some of these to whet your appetite.
Until soon, Albert...
