Seven Times Salt presents: Up Merry Mates: Revels at the Inns of Court 
London's Inns of Court, where lawyers have trained for centuries, held lavish winter festivities during Queen Elizabeth I's reign. Nightly revels gave law students a welcome break from their studies, offering the chance to act, sing, dance and drink alongside the public and nobility alike! Masques with ornate sets and fantastical costumes spared no expense and concluded with rambunctious country dances for all. Comic and dramatic songs by Campion, Dowland, and Robert Johnson; masquing tunes by Coperario, Adson, and Morley; and the old measures, or ceremonial court dances, in our own brand-new arrangements for broken consort. See website for more details.
