You will find Theatre of Now marauding across the UK and Europe, a troupe of multi-talented players entertaining with a huge variety of delights, from improvised comedy through to physical theatre performances of Shakespeare.
This exquisite production of Shakespeare's lesser known play uses the power and magic of imagination to bring the world of Richard alive. Without the limitations of props, costumes or set, the Fools are free to fly from one place to another, creating film like images with their bodies and riding on a wave of emotions that the audience is able to feel, no matter how tricky they find the words!
This new ensemble of Fools are currently touring Shakespeare's Richard II as well as improvised Fooling shows, having recently completed training as part of the Nomadic Academy of Fools. This is the company's forth Shakespeare play under the Artistic Direction of Jonathan Kay, having also produced Dolly Award Winning, A Midsummer Night’s Dream 1999/01, The Tempest 2002, Romeo & Juliet 2003/4, using his unique theatrical technique, which creates whole worlds without the use of costumes, props or sets, instead working with the imagination of the audience to take them on a journey into their inner world.
Jolie Booth played Richard II, among many other parts, from 2008 until 2011
