Event Series Event Series: Slapstick!


20 April @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm


A play by Sue Curtis in collaboration with Jon Monie.

Step into an uproarious journey through the mayhem of Regency Theatre!
This play takes you on an insane, hilarious, and moving adventure, telling the extraordinary life story of Joseph Grimaldi, using his unique blend of melodrama, mime, song, and clowning.

Picture this: Grimaldi is ready to unveil his final show, aiming to share his life with the audience. Chaos ensues when the cast and set are waylaid by highwaymen outside Covent Garden, leaving Grimaldi and a panic-stricken Stage Manager to take on every role themselves. With only two musicians, still recovering from a wild night at the theatre, they embark on a riotous production. Believe it or not, every astonishing moment in the story they tell is based on true events!

This laugh-out-loud show is brought to life by a team of Bath’s wittiest theatrical talent, featuring Jon MonieNik HowdenJools Scott and Harry Miller, in the stunning Old Theatre Royal. It’s an unforgettable experience that captures the essence of Regency Theatre and the birth of the modern Clown.
