It's a busy couple of months for Milk Bottle - with several projects happening at once. Robert is down to his last three projects of Project 10/52, with two being ticked off by October - the new audio comedy series, The Museum of Tat and a new play Historic Crimes which will be live streamed online as part of the first performance. There's also a revival of a favourite project from earlier in the year The Juliet Inquiry which was hugely successful. Book now, listen now, get involved.

Milk Bottle Productions Presents...
THE JULIET INQUIRY
By Robert Crighton
Based on the story of Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare
Specially commissioned to celebrate Shakespeare's 450th Birthday
A complete re-imagining of the play where the story of Romeo and Juliet is told as a modern day public inquiry. In this version the Montagues and the Capulets were once close families - until their children fell in love. This is the story of how love can tear apart, as well as heal, and how that love can seem when put under the public gaze.
Performing on Friday 3rd October at 7.30pm at the Lavenham Village Hall
Performing on Saturday 4th October at 7.30pm at the Offton Village Hall
World Premiere By Robert Crighton – the Quay’s Artist in Residence
What would you want to see if you could look back in time and watch famous events in history? And what would you do if they greatly disappointed you? Or you discovered a hidden crime? Would you tell the world if you discovered that Shakespeare no less was guilty of the worst of crimes? Could you ever read his plays again? Or allow them to be staged? World premiere of a modern morality tale about Bardolatry, sex and lies – staged as a live radio broadcast and streaming live online at www.ustream.tv/channel/robert-crighton-storyteller
Performing on Monday 13th October at 7.30pm at the Quay Theatre, Sudbury
