Friends and families from across the globe have been sharing a unique evening's live entertainment with us online. Following our sell-out Murder Mysteries and 4 STAR The Wind in the Willows, it is now the turn of our GSC Young Company, who invite you to join us for a virtual drink at the Boar’s Garter Inn for a comedic adventure of romance, deceit and power!

Postponed from April and performed live by the Young Company members from their homes across the region, MEASURE THE MERRY NIGHT is a re-working of three of GSC’s main shows from 2019. The story line has been devised by the company and rehearsals have continued to take place online throughout lock-down.

Directed by Francesca McInally | Devised by the company | Written by Ant Stones

This show has now finished

Running Time 60 mins (approx.)

In the mystical land of Velyria, the lazy leader, Duke Vincent, is about to vanish, leaving the ruthless Judge Amelia in charge. She is determined to crack down on all drunken behaviour, though she has one Achilles Heel; a soft spot for one of her servants.

Meanwhile, a lost twin is dragged from the sea by the blubbery Sir Hugh Oldcastle. Duty-bound to help his new friend win the favours of two rich ladies, he becomes entangled with members of The Boar’s Garter Inn, where confusion, trickery and laughter are the order of the day.

Grab your finest bottle and join Guildford’s best young talent for 60 minutes of online merriment, at Velyria's favourite tavern.
