Mr Brown’s Directions: The Play
March 10 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
A new play by Rachel Feldberg in partnership with Burton Constable Hall and Lit Up East Riding.
Passion, entanglement and a superstar gardener….It’s 1769 and William Constable Esq of Burton Constable Hall has big ideas. Not content with refashioning his house and tearing down the stables, the old park HAS to go.
Aided, abetted – and sometimes blocked – by his lively sister Winifred and faithful steward John Raines, Willian is determined to transform his parkland into the height of 18th Century fashion. But where is the elusive Mr ‘Capability’ Brown? And will he ever agree to come to Holderness?
Inspired by original archive material with live music and sumptuous costumes, eaves drop on a dramatic decade in Burton Constable’s history, a time of Rousseau, curiosities, love and loss.
Cost: £15 per person (includes a complimentary drink on arrival)
