ALTERNATIVESHAKESPEARE
Reworkings of Shakespeare Plays

We believe our approach of staying faithful to the original works by putting them in a very different setting

results in a startling rejuvenation of the text, giving them a whole new life and meaning; reaction

from audience members and press give evidence to this.

Our Alt-Shakespeare  work is written to offer contemporary new insights into Shakespeare's 

original plays, whilst retaining Shakespeare's original words/themes/characters.
