'Monmouth' - Marine Theatre Community Play 2017!


Becky Varndell



Church Street,
Lyme Regis,


Following from the outstanding Tempest of Lyme this summer, the 2017 Marine Theatre Community Production will be 'Monmouth', a specially commissioned play re-telling the events of the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685, which began here on Monmouth Beach (and, for some of the local rebels, also gruesomely ended there). It is written by Andrew Rattenbury and directed by Clemmie Reynolds: the team that – with a little help from W. Shakespeare – brought us The Tempest of Lyme.

Performances (times to be confirmed) will be on:
Friday 7th July
Sat 8th July
Sunday 9th July
Thurs 13th July
Fri 14th July
Sat 15th July

Several interesting events, related to this story, have been arranged for the winter and spring period beforehand (See our 'Monmouth Talks' section in the Marine Theatre's Spring Brochure for more details).

If you'd like to be involved in the production casting dates will be taking place on Thursday 26th January and Thursday 2nd February 2017. Please email Becky at to find out more and register your interest.
