Improvised Shakespeare

Is this a Shakespeare show I see before me?  Shakespeare was well known for making up words.  We follow his lead and copy some of his stuff! It’ll be scenes from Shakespeare that never made it to print…





A Mystery Show

Turn up to see something you weren’t expecting.  We will perform a show for one time only, never to be repeated.  It’ll be like nothing you have ever seen before.  If you don’t come, you’ll never know…





All guests are reminded of the following entry requirements and to practice COVID Safe Behaviours including:
– Sanitising hands upon entry
