Coxwold Village Hall
HC Productions present: Laurence Sterne on Stage
A Sentimental Journey & Tristram Shandy
Mister Macaroni and his bungling troupe of players come to Coxwold for a highly entertaining evening of Georgian comedy: Laurence Sterne’s major works, A Sentimental Journey & Tristram Shandy as you’ve never seen them before.
In A Sentimental Journey we follow the absent minded, and easily distracted, Parson Yorick as he encounters an assortment of lords, ladies and chamber maids in his travels through France and Italy. Things get complicated: he forgets that England is at war with France, he doesn’t have a passport and he finds himself stranded in a storm in the mountains.........
Tristram Shandy introduces us to the love story of Captain Toby Shandy and the Widow Wadman. Just how serious is the Captain’s war wound, and will it influence the outcome of his “amours”?
