The Play's the Thing title image

Sir Robert Cecilís Men perform specially adapted plays based on the works of renaissance playwrights such as Shakespeare, Marlowe and Johnson. All of these plays are our own adaptations, staged in our own unique way.

Robert Cecilís have presented plays in a number of historical settings to considerable praise, including:
~ Framlingham Castle
~ Kenilworth Castle
~ Greenwich Henry VIII Festival
~ Scarborough Castle
~ Kelmarsh Festival of History

All of our stage performances last around 30 minutes.

As a special treat, why not commission Sir Robert Cecilís to perform a Shakespearean Murder Mystery or Spy Catching Evening?

Midsummer Nightís Comedy ~ Richard III ~ Hamlet ~ The Gunpowder Treason ~ Henry V ~ Romeo & Juliet
