The Taming of the Shrew | Sport For Jove

In this big, bold, inventive and innovative production of The Taming of the Shrew, license has been taken with Will’s quill, with Shakespeare’s Shrew shaken into a sea shanty, a silent film melodrama, and a silly arse farce, but the dizzying discipline on show from the entire ensemble keeps the engine of the narrative and plot at full steam.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead | Furies Theatre

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is an evergreen favourite for those who enjoy crackling wordplay and stinging absurdist irony, shot through with accessible philosophical musings and a heavy dose of archly self-aware humour about the nature of theatre and actors.
