We're Ready To Play!

Since 1994, we've been bringing professional Shakespearean theatre to audiences of all ages, from all walks of life. We offer productions of the Bard's original plays, not adaptations.

We remain true to Shakespeare's text and meaning while reviving the rollicking spirit of his theatre. Our family-friendly shows are fast-paced, interactive and spontaneous.
