Get your tickets for The Country Wife in Ludlow and Shrewsbury

We're delighted to announce that The Country Wife is coming to Ludlow and Shrewsbury this June. We're taking on our first Restoration comedy with this ribald and racy play and very excited to be performing for eight nights at Ludlow Brewery and then debuting in Shrewsbury with a performance at Theatre Severn.

William Wycherley's masterpiece bursts into life with its wit and innuendo, building layer upon layer of farcical action and situations. The characters are larger than life and the pace and inventiveness of Restoration comedy can be extraordinary. We will present this ribald roller coaster of a play in our celebrated fresh and accessible style.

Following our run at Ludlow Brewery from 14th to 22nd June we are performing The Country Wife at the Walker Theatre, Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury on Saturday 24th June. This lovely 250 seat space has raked seating and excellent sight lines while being small and intimate enough for our characteristic engagement and interaction with the audience.

Ludlow Brewery performances are Wednesday 14th to Thursday 22nd June at 7.30pm (no performance Sunday 18th). Tickets are £15 full price and £11 for students and under 18s.

Get your Ludlow tickets online or from Ludlow Assembly Rooms by phone on 01584 878141, or at 1 Mill Street, Ludlow, SY8 1AZ.

The Shrewsbury performance is on Saturday 24th June at 7.30. Tickets are £15.
