Shakespeare’s Fool

Wednesday 29 June @ 7:30 pm

Garioch Theatre Festival 2022

Wednesday 29 June 


The Acorn Centre, Inverurie 

Tortive Theatre

Ages 12+


Gentleman player, juggling jester, headmaster of Morris dancers and London’s finest clown, until…he fell out with Will ‘git-face’ Shakespeare. Kempe died alone and poverty-stricken, not very far from the original Globe Theatre, of which he was an original shareholder and faded into obscurity; a world away from his former life having supposedly originated some of literature’s best-known characters, including Bottom, Dogberry, and Falstaff.

Join ‘Cavaliero’ Kempe on the streets of London as he gives his final performance to an audience of a mouse and a marrote and tells the tale of his life, his rise to stardom and what really happened between him and William Shakespeare.

This one-actor show, starring Robin Leetham premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2021 and received rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.

A bittersweet tale, told by an idiot.
