Tobias Bacon died of Love in 1619. Join him on the 400th anniversary of his death as he finds out how.

Elizabethan is a brand-new musical comedy... but all the songs in it are 400 years old. David William Hughes brings a fresh new perspective to on Renaissance music in this acclaimed one-man show, as, with the help of the audience, he brings Tobias Bacon, and a trio of his lovers, back to life with ‘impressive, accomplished musicality and… genuinely funny character comedy’ (The 730 Review).

Elizabethan comes to Adelaide after a critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe, and sell-out shows in London, Boston, and New York. Guaranteed to be the only show you’ll see this year that includes a genuine, authentic, sixteenth-century song about a sex toy.
