Guerilla Shakespeare

by andy on October 27, 2011

Guerilla Shakespeare is a regular event in which we cast a Shakespeare play, give the actors the script to learn their lines and then just let them turn up and perform the show with NO rehearsal, direction or prior contact with the rest of the cast.

Events thus far have included completely unrehearsed productions of King Lear at the Westminster Hub, Twelfth Night at Limehouse Town Hall, Romeo and Juliet at the Roundhouse in Camden and Troilus and Cressida at the British Museum.

Our next Guerilla Shakespeare event will be a completely unrehearsed performance of King Henry V at the Wallace Collection on Saturday 23rd April 2016. We are currently accepting submissions to join the cast of this show so if you are interested in taking part then please get in touch with us using the form on the ‘Contact Us’ page of this website.

Details of how to be in the audience will be made available very shortly.
