The British Shakespeare Company
As a performer of Shakespeare's works the British Shakespeare Company is second in size and reputation only to the RSC.
As well as being "Britain's largest and best loved open-air Shakespeare Company" (The BBC), we have performed in London's West End, at major repertory theatres and even at Royal Palaces. We have also performed private shows for British and international businesses, and in aid of several major charities.
We can offer a full-length production as part of our tour or tailor an event to suit your needs, time and budget. Below are some suggestions…
A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
“A spellbinding and rewarding night our…better than the RSC…simply a triumph” Yorkshire Evening Post
“Sheer delight, never has Shakespeare been so entertaining” The BBC
This production is a one hour version of Shakespeare’s comedy classic. It is edited to include all aspects of the story, all famous speeches and all the finest and funniest moments. It will be easy to follow and run at an exciting pace to keep the audience engaged at all times.
It is based around our critically-acclaimed production that toured in both 2005 and 2006 to sell-out audiences.
AN EVENING WITH WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
