Tickets are selling fast for just four UK performances of Edward’s Boys’ production of The Woman Hater by Francis Beaumont, directed by Perry Mills.
The delight of Edward’s Boys in working on this hilariously offensive play by Francis Beaumont is not just that their performances will be the first since it was written in 1606, but that they will be performing in three exciting new spaces.
The performances on March 9 and 11 will be the first in the newly restored RSC theatre The Other Place in Stratford-upon-Avon (tickets £12.00, £8.00 concessions, book in person at the RSC Box Office, by phone on 01789 403493, or visit http://www.rsc.org.uk/the-woman-hater to book online).

The performance on March 10 will be in the lovely Oxford University Catholic Chaplaincy off St. Aldates (tickets: £10.00, concessions £8.00, book online only at www.ticketsource.co.uk/kes).
Finally in London on March 12, as part of the Beaumont400 conference commemorating the 400th anniversary of Beaumont’s death, Edward’s Boys will perform The Woman Hater in the exquisite College Chapel at the Strand, the spiritual heart of King’s College (tickets: £10.00, concessions £8.00, book online only at www.ticketsource.co.uk/kes).
