Alt-Theatre / Alt-Shakes



On the back of the experience we've gleaned on our journey to date,

we are excited to announce a new training opportunity!

These Zoom sessions have been running weekly since April 2020.

Out of this has come a staged new piece of Alt-Shakespeare,

Romeo & Juliet: The Confessions featuring 3 actors who

were part of these Zoom sessions.

Another play, Lady Macbeth (alone) is currently being workshopped.

​This is what we're going to do . . .

​Together to understand how Shakespeare might have

created his Theatre by working collaboratively.


Take the existing Shakespeare plays and apply

the Alt-Theatre methods.


Isolate his characters, themes, speeches, lines,

scenes etc from their original setting​.


Workshop the text in new ways via Zoom to discover

how it works and bring it to theatrical life.


Recreate new Shakespeare work out of old Shakespeare plays.

Bring our own experiences of the world

to enrich our creative process.


The Workshops are for . . .

People who want to work collaboratively to push the

limits of their Theatre skills and development.

Actors who want to immerse themselves in the fun and

excitement of bringing Shakespeare's words to life.

Workshopping alternative ways of presenting classical Theatre

to resonate with today's world around us.

Creating new plays for stage performances,

books, audio pieces, videos etc.


Providing workshop and performance material for our

Alt-Shakespeare podcasts (launching this year).​
