Sweet William takes an irreverent look at Elizabethan England. Shakespeare, seen as a bit of a provincial hick by his friends Fat Jack, Peter the Painter, Mac the Wrestler and Nicholas the Thief, joins them all for a drink in the pub, only to discover they have several bones to pick with him. When Shakespeare arrives with two ‘posh’ friends in tow, he is relentlessly ribbed by his mates. But in true Shakespearean style, there is a revelation and a resolution at the end that is guaranteed to leave you on a high. Join the fourteen strong cast from this internationally renowned touring company as they bring their rough music, drama and magic to the stage… Sweet William is touring in repertory with Northern Broadsides’ acclaimed new production of Comedy of Errors.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
