Crude Apache Theatre Group
“Gammer Gurton’s Needle”, 7.00 – 9.00 p.m.
Norwich community theatre
collective Crude Apache celebrate their twentieth anniversary this summer,
with a show that combines everything that this dynamic group does best –
open air theatre, broad comedy, a sense of history, and a “louche disregard
for convention”, as one reviewer once put it.
Gammer Gurton's Needle
is one of the first English comedies, a hilarious knockabout tale of
misunderstandings between larger-than-life clownish characters.
“Expect physical comedy, music, song, dance, a fast pace and some memorable
moments,” says director Jo Swan.
The show contains some moderate
medieval oaths and frequent references to bottoms.
In true Crude
Apache style, entry to all shows will be free of charge – although donations
will be welcomed.
The tour kicks off at 7.30pm on the 1st of July in the
Tudor garden at Stranger's Hall, and later visits Grapes Hill Community
Garden (3 July), The Whiffler at Castle Gardens (6,11+12 July), the hidden
gem which is the Gothic-Italian Plantation Garden (9 July) and a number of
