Back this summer at Worthing’s magical Highdown Gardens
The troupe perform their acclaimed, exciting and understandable productions of two of Shakespeare’s greatest plays, which can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Twelfth Night, 16th to 21st July, is one of the world’s greatest comedies of love, madness and cross-dressing! Rainbow’s second production of Othello, 23rd to 28th July, is drama at its most thrilling. A great Moorish general serving the State of Venice marries a young heiress. Their innocent love is destroyed by the ‘green-eyed goddess’, manipulated by that greatest of all villains, Iago. Sword fights and feasting, romance and revenge, it could be a sixteenth century Game of Thrones!
This is Rainbow’s twentieth year of creating productions that have made many regular patrons say it is the high spot of their year. The Company make their audiences feel part of the performance. “I first saw Twelfth Night at the age of six at a school production,” remembers director Nick Young. “It inspired in me a love of Shakespeare which, as a director, I have aimed to share with audiences ever since.”
