“It’s Shakespeare, but not as you know it!”
Updated: Jun 18, 2018
Citizens Advice Liverpool are sponsoring ODDSOCKS’s theatre group performance of the Tempest on Wednesday 4th July, 2018 at St Luke's Bombed Out Church.
Oddsocks Productions have spent over 28 years creating bold, interactive and comedy productions of Shakespeare’s works. This summer they are back on their road with their hugely funny, space-age and musical production of The Tempest.
Whether it’s a live on-stage car chase (Romeo and Juliet, 2009) or the fairy-king as an avatar superhero (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, 2014) Oddsocks have no boundaries when it comes to creating memorable and unique comedy productions of the classics.
Shakespeare’s story of mystery and madness is brought hilariously to life alongside a soundtrack of classic songs. Oddsocks have exchanged the stormy season for a scientific space-age setting; forget what you know about Shakespeare’s classic and expect the unexpected.
If you’re curious to see how Oddsocks can transform the tragicomedy to hermetical hilarity, then The Tempest is not to be missed. Oddsocks’ Artistic Director and playing Prospero, Andy Barrow says this is “Shakespeare for today. Seriously silly Shakespeare!”
The Tempest is one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays and tells the story of revenge, love and loyalty. Although the comedy might not leap off the page, Oddsocks have 28 years experience in guaranteeing to provide laughs aplenty!
Andy continues by describing their unique style of performances: “Oddsocks is a theatrical experience for everyone. As actors, we’re putting on a party and everyone is invited. It’s theatre that’s highly energetic, full of life and plenty of laughs! It’s Shakespeare, but not as you know it!”
Heather Brent, Chief Officer of Citizens Advice Liverpool said:
“Our previous support of Oddsocks productions has helped us to increase the profile of Citizens Advice Liverpool whilst raising vital funds in the process. People are not always aware that Citizens Advice Liverpool is a Charity and sponsoring events such as this, helps bring it to their attention and raise money to help maintain our services at a time when we are experiencing unprecedented demand along with major funding cuts."
Oddsocks are also touring a comedy, Mods and Rockers inspired, musical production of Romeo and Juliet alongside The Tempest. More details can be found at www.oddsocks.co.uk
