Venue, Timing and Cost
Tonight’s show will consist of performances by Paul Lodge and artists from The Food of Love Project.
Paul Lodge will present a selection from Shakespeare in the Alley, a cycle of songs written with Richard Lodge in response to Shakespeare’s plays. The songs take words and phrases from Shakespeare and reflect on his characters and themes to create a humble homage that aims to capture some of the atmosphere and genius of the original works.
The Food of Love Project is an album commissioned by Tom McDonnell, director of the Oxford Shakespeare Jubilee 2016. It contains music mentioned or performed in Shakespeare’s plays. The performance will feature songs from Brickwork Lizards, Joe Swarbrick, The Children of the Midnight Chimes and Flights of Helios.
