Our Manifesto

We are a theatre company creating shows around the life, times and works of William Shakespeare.
We offer a wide range of workshops, because we believe that making Shakespeare accessible to anyone, anywhere, is of the utmost importance.
We are based in London and tour internationally.

Our work is poetic. We love words, their sound, their rhythm, their meaning and their origins.

Our work is poignant. Filled with comedy, tragedy, history and mystery, our plays will take you on an adventure!

Our work is provocative. We use free movement, most of which is improvised every night, because we think that Shakespeare should be a workout, and that the body intelligence can help us access deeper emotions.

We believe that Shakespeare is where the common emotional heritage of humanity can be experienced.
And we want to bring you closer to it.
