The Play On Shakespeare Fest

A festival celebrating two of Shakespeare's most beloved plays:

Tuesday 7th & Friday 10th of May
A modern reinvention of Shakespeare's As You Like It
Directed by Shayde Sinclair.

This tale follows eight characters who journey through the Forest of Arden, in a search for love and belonging. Set in a modern day world, this production lands much closer to home and explores the themes of priviledge and gentrification in Shakespeare's brilliantly witty and warm comedy.

The return of Quirkspace's gripping, all female production of Othello
Directed by Danäe Cambrook.

Desdemona and Othello have fallen fiercely in love. General Othello fights alongside his soldiers defending Cyrus from the Turkish invasion, but at the heart of the military camp a war is raging closer to the heart. Betrayal, manipulation and jealousy and voilently intertwined in Shakespeare's gripping tale of power, love and the green-eyed monster.
