Kent's favourite professional touring company, Changeling Theatre, is back and better than ever this summer for their 21st outdoor theatre tour with two plays on offer at plenty of locations all over the county.

Whether you love the wisecracking wit of Oscar Wilde's deviously fun play The importance of Being Earnest or William Shakespeare's Othello an epic tragedy of lies and manipulation, you'll not want to miss Changling Theatres Summer 2022 Tour.

"Changeling offers something rarely found in contemporary theatre. They offer audiences a chance to become part of the atmosphere. There is no passive sitting in the stalls here; you will be immersed in and surrounded by the performances, becoming a crucial part of the world created. Allowing actors the opportunity to relish the audience's presence, to be reactive, adaptive and interactive whilst performing some of the worlds' best writing is a rare treat." said Dame Janet Suzman, DBE.
