11 — 15 February

English Touring Theatre presents the Shakespeare's Globe production Eternal Love at Hall for Cornwall. Time - 7.30pm.

English Touring Theatre presents the Shakespeare's Globe production Eternal Love, The Story of Abelard and Heloise by Howard Brenton, Director John Dove.

 

The same creative team who brought us the vivid and vibrant Anne Boleyn in 2012 now offer a real treat with their next spellbinding tale.

When Abelard begins a wild affair with his brilliant student Heloise, his enemies find the perfect pretext to destroy him. Abelard is already on thin ice with the church over his contentious views and when Heloise bears his child out of wedlock, their affair becomes the scandal of the age…

With its dynamic, contemporary language, stunning costumes and terrific live music, fiery philosophical debate and history burst into life in an energetic, visceral and above all highly entertaining production. Previously titled 'In Extremis' and following a triumphant season at Shakespeare’s Globe, audiences outside of London now get the chance to revel in this funny, passionate and legendary love story.

Dates: 11th Feb - 15th Feb 2014.
