Sweaty, stripped-back Shakespeare. The actors, the audience, the text. Merely present their 2 nd UK tour in association with The Production Exchange. A genderblind repertory company with absolute clarity at the heart of their approach. Minimalist, inventive production design frames productions dripping with energy, packed with ingenuity, delivered for (and with) the audience. Exhilarating, sharp and hilarious, the shows are loved by audiences and acclaimed by critics across the country, offering an authentic Shakespearean experience for the 21st century.
Unlikely lovers collide in a tale of identical twins, multiple disguises and mistaken identities. The five actors use endless invention and boundless imagination in a production that proves raucous and joyous, witty and moving.

“I laughed from start to finish and came away with a whole new appreciation for the work of Shakespeare” North West End ****
