The 25th annual CHRISTMAS REVELS visits the colorful Renaissance world of Shakespeare and Queen Elizabeth I.
Will Kemp, the brilliant and irreverent clown from Shakespeare’s company, has just Morris-danced for nine days from London to Norwich. His next feat? To devise some rustic revels to delight the Queen, soon to arrive on her Winter Solstice ‘Progess.’ Mischief and merriment ensue, with glorious Renaissance music, rousing Morris dance, a set of rustic actors, and of course, Good Queen Bess!
