There seems to be so much Shakespeare lined up for the summer it’s difficult to keep track. However, I’m going to have a quick look about and see what I can collect together here. Please let me know if I’ve missed anything and I can add it.

We don’t have anyone lined up to review these, so if you are interested please get in touch with me.

Some of the productions detailed below are playing elsewhere and fairly nearby too. Just follow the links on the play titles to find out more.
