British Prime Minister Theresa May is to face a vote of no-confidence in her own parilamentary party this evening, after Tory rebels mustered enough letters from Conservative MPs supporting the move. May faces a revolt over her Brexit deal and postponed a vote on it in parliament this week, saying it was clear she would not win majority support for it.

Multilingual Theatre Footsbarn's caravans roll into Paris

Multilingual Theatre Footsbarn's caravans roll into Paris
Pascal Gély

The Footsbarn Travelling Theatre Company based in the centre of France, is celebrating Shakespeare and delivering their version of writer Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Far from the gilded sophistication of the 19th century four-tier theatres in Paris with their big curtains and brightly lit foyers, a circus ring is the stage for the Footsbarn Theatre Company's Shakespeare Celebrations and Cuckoo's Nest (Nid de Coucou) which is playing until the end of February.

Inside the Cirque Romanès, on the edge of the Bois de Boulogne, Footsbarn's Paddy Hayter and his crew of actors, singers and musicians put on a variety show made up of extracts from a selection of Shakespeare's best known plays (Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer's Night Dream, Macbeth, King Lear, Richard III, A Winter's Tale) reminiscient of high school fun and gags.

Overall they present a mixture of nostalgic, tried and trusted Footsbarn-style for adults and a child-friendly discovery of Shakespeare, in French English and other languages.
Until 27 February 2017.
