Thursday 20 April JUST AN ORDINARY LAWYER
Tayo Aluko & Friends
At Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds

“The British Empire was trying desperately to hold on to its colonial possessions by any means… and the foul would often override the fair.”
Nigerian Tunji Sowande quietly breaks through multiple barriers to become Britain’s first black judge in 1978. Also a fine concert singer and keen cricket lover, he muses on international politics and history as they affect the black world from Africa to the USA and Britain, from the point of view of one who would rather watch sports and spread love and peace through the medium of song.

‘Another triumph... that thrills and touches’ ★★★★★ British Theatre Guide

Wednesday 26 & Thursday 27 April AS YOU LIKE IT
LAMDA
At Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds

An audience favourite since its first performance in 1603, As You Like It is among Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies. An idyllic country setting provides the backdrop for this romantic adventure, as Rosalind and Orlando’s famous courtship is played out amidst the turmoil of political rivalry, mistaken identity and exile in the Forest of Arden.

The rules of romance are discarded and traditional gender roles are abandoned as Rosalind, disguised as the boy Ganymede, attempts to ‘cure’ Orlando of his lovesickness. Including some of the Bard’s most glorious wordplay and oft-quoted speeches, including ‘all the world’s a stage’, As You Like It is a glorious romp in the woods!

Friday 28 & Saturday 29 April BURY FAIR
LAMDA
At Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds

In this affectionate satire of his home town, Thomas Shadwell throws a pair of London sparks and a French pretender into the world of Bury St Edmunds. A pretentious female fop and her mother, a handful of gloriously idiotic local wags and a young woman in disguise as a boy to escape the will of her father – all dance headlong into chaos. All the fun of the fair in Bury indeed!

Thomas Shadwell was born at Stanton Hall, Norfolk in 1642. Educated at Bury St Edmunds School and at Caius College, Cambridge, he was made Poet Laureate in 1688 and wrote Bury Fair the following year.
