Using extracts from nearly 30 of Shakespeare's plays, both serious and funny, Seven Ages - or what you Will was an original, entertaining and thought-provoking play, conceived, written and directed by Gill Morrell. It shows the inebriated ne'er do well Christopher Sly from The Taming of the Shrew encountering the mysterious Will, who takes him on a journey through the seven ages of man, and asks him to choose between his present self-indulgent behaviour and a future of virtuous chastity and honesty.
Our intrepid cast gave two performances on a sunny day in Stratford in August 2015, to an enthusiastic reception from large and attentive audiences as well as our mini-tour of four local venues in early October: the Mission Theatre in Bath; the Pound, Corsham; the Wharf, Devizes; and St Margaret's Hall, Bradford on Avon.
Seven Ages... is a unique piece of theatre...
