Kemp’s Jig – An Elizabethan Roadshow by Chris Harris
Blue Fire Theatre
Meet Will Kemp – comic superstar and creator of several of Shakespeare’s comedy roles. Kemp’s Jig is a romp through Elizabethan England as told from the viewpoint of one of Shakespeare’s forgotten clowns as he Morris dances his way to London. Based on Kemp’s own diary the show is an irreverent one-man show telling of the differences between Kemp and a great British playwright. Fans of Shakespeare in Love or Upstart Crow will cheer the maverick Kemp on his way. It is hoped that the evening may contain some traditional English dance as an introduction and finale to the evening.
