DROLL
  • Edinburgh Fringe

In 1642, theatre was made illegal. Theatre didn't die. The award-winning Owle Schreame theatre company present a chaotic and semi-improvised selection of rough, wild, raucous and bawdy, short (illegal) plays from the 16th and 17th centuries. Unperformed for almost 400 years, Drolls were the farcical, chaotic mini-productions held in secret during the outlawing of the theatres, usually finishing with the cast getting dragged to jail. Every performance is unique. Described as innovative, interactive and genuinely engaging, 'this rare oddity of a production is bacchanalia, call-the-police, drunken theatre: not to be missed. Don't' ***** (Guardian).
