Ashrow Theatre are delighted that our Edwardian Street Theatre will be entertaining audiences again
from May – September
Since spring 2015 actors from Ashrow Theatre, dressed in lavish Edwardian costumes have been entertaining visitors to Derby’s Cathedral Quarter with specially-adapted snapshots of our acclaimed production of Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’
The Cathedral Quarter has been an excellent setting for this innovative approach to street theatre, combining five-minute adapted scenes from the play with characters interacting with passers-by to discuss the surroundings and Edwardian life in Derby. This has helped to bring history to life in the area in a fun and entertaining way. During the ‘Day Out’, our performers engage and interact with visitors – staying in character to talk about some of the area’s important landmarks and places of interest.
