“We are such stuff as dreams are made on”
This summer the hugely popular company are premiering their show at the prestigious Brighton Festival, before heading off on a tour around the UK that takes in the most significant, historically important and visually stunning castles, cathedrals and stately homes, finishing their tour in mainland Europe in September. With audiences encouraged to bring picnics, a chair or a blanket and a glass of something chilled this show promises to be another authentic, excellent and magical treat from the company that brought you last year’s riotous farce The Comedy of Errors.
Shakespeare’s late, great gem, widely believed to be the last full play he wrote alone, examines the power of true love, our capacity for vengeance and what it takes to forgive. A play that has mesmerised and moved audiences for over 400 years is just as relevant and powerful today.
