Who the f–k is shakespeare?

Thursday 19th — Saturday 21st September



“We’re adding to the story, giving you all the gory details.”


Following a sell-out run, four of Shakespeare’s (in)famous characters are back for a national tour, ready to tell their side of the story.

Join them as they blow the dust off the classics to stage a multi-art form political occupation of stories steeped in racism, patriarchy and violence.

Armed with punchy verses, punky attitudes, and whole lotta wit – let’s rip out the pages, raise the roof, and rise up!
