A grand night out at The Swan , Stratford.

I was invited last night to join two lovely friends to see the RSC production of ‘The Shoemaker’s Holiday’ by Thomas Dekker, a play I knew nothing about. It turned out to be very enjoyable in its own right, but also fascinating to see a play written and performed at the same time as Shakespeare’s  ‘Henry V’ and other history  plays. It was  a comedy based on the real life of Simon Eyre, a Lord Mayor of London. He was  rumbustiously played by David Troughton, and  had many similarities with FalstaffWP_20150303_002, but without his roguery. As always with the RSC,  there was  great staging , great music and great ensemble playing by all the actors .
