Sit-down Sonnets 2020

Sit-down Sonnets 2020

How have Shakespeare’s characters been getting along in lockdown? Come along to the churchyard at Holy Trinity, Goodramgate and check in with some old favourites as they grapple with masks, social distancing and sanitiser and each share a sonnet. You will sit in the security of your own social bubble in the leafy sanctuary of Holy Trinity’s hidden churchyard. The show will be around 45 minutes long.

Our Sit-down Sonnets are aimed at those aged 14+ but may be enjoyed by younger folk with the right support from their accompanying adult.

For the last three years, York Shakespeare Project have run Sonnet Walks around the city centre. Sit-down Sonnets is this year’s variation, dictated by current circumstances. It’s our way of keeping going and keeping you going.

Welcome back to live theatre!
