The Questors Theatre

The Remarkable Theatrical Adventures of Peregrine Proteus

By Jane Dewey

All the world's a stage...

Set in early 19th century England, this rip-roaring new play tracks one man's life, from his humble birth to his time in the spotlight. Along the way, we meet a series of eccentric thespians, from inept actors to smooth-talking theatre managers, hopeful playwrights to doting romantics.

However, as Proteus finally gets his big break, all is put on the line when he falls for the daughter of one of the gentry, who has been promised to another man. Managing to charm his way out of danger, will Proteus grab hold of his career before it is snatched away? And could the love of one person be stronger than the crowds calling his name?

Written by Prize-winning playwright Jane Dewey, this wonderfully comic production takes us inside the ecosystem of historic theatre communities. Expect songs in the style of the period, fast-paced multi-roling, and a Christmas finale like no other.

A world premiere of an uproarious new play inspired by the popular book The Life of An Actor (1825) by Pierce Egan. 

Playwright Jane Dewey was the winner of the World Coarse Acting Championship with her previous play 'Present Slaughter'. This exciting new play marks her long-awaited return to The Questors.

There will be a socially distanced performance on WEDNESDAY 28TH DECEMBER at 7.45PM.

Part of our Autumn 2022 Season.
