"And let those that play your clowns say no more than is set down"
In 1600 Will Kemp, the most famous comic and clown of his generation and Will Shakespeare, most famous playwright in history, fell out in an argument over a play. Shakespeare stayed in London, writing and producing plays still renowned the world over. Kemp decided to capitalise on his celebrity and embarked on a bizarre PR stunt, Morris dancing the 125 miles from London to Norwich.
Based on Kemp's own diary, "The Nine Daies Wonder", Kemp's Jig is a romp through Elizabethan England, in the company of the most famous comic you’ve never heard of. Share in the adventures of Shakespeare’s forgotten clown in this “horrible history” for all ages – a tale of music, maidens and very sore feet!
This one man show has been seen all over the world and was revived by Blue Fire in 2019. Fans of Upstart Crow and Shakespeare in Love will enjoy cheering the maverick Kemp on his way.
