A comedy in five acts. It was the last written of his four great comedies and first staged on October 31st, 1614 at the Hope Theatre by the Lady Elizabeth's Men. Written four years after 'The Alchemist,' five after 'Epicoene, or the Silent Woman,' and nine after 'Volpone,' it is in some respects the most experimental of these plays.
Castaway presents a contemporary and accessible interpretation of this flamboyant, bawdy and gorgeously irreverent classic. Bartholomew Fair is a fast-paced, classic Jacobean comedy. Dripping with biting satire, the play takes the temperature of English city life in 1614 at a celebratory event where all social distinctions are brought together... the fair.
