Caliban's Codex is a new monologue written by John Knowles, created with Emily Carding (Richard III, Brite Theatre). Inspired by Shakespearean iambic pentameter, this one-woman show explores loss, abuse and magic and is a disturbing insight into Caliban's world view.
"This is a brilliant creation. Caliban finally comes into his own—battered and bruised, hideous but full of intelligence. Emily Carding fully inhabits this creature." (Steve Gove, Prague Fringe Theatre Founder and Director.)

About the company:
The Widgeon Theatreboat is an 82-year-old traditional working narrowboat, rejuvenated from transporting grit, sand & gravel into an extraordinary theatrical venue. It offers two stages: one playing to an audience seated bankside, one within the boat itself under a circus-style canvas. Take this opportunity to enjoy plays in an intimate ambience—outdoor theatre at it's best.
