About the company
Shakespeare's Wanderers is an outdoor theatre company that is passionate about creating bold, inventive and - above all - fun productions of Shakespeare that everyone can enjoy.
We put on shows in all sorts of venues - whether it's a stately garden, manor house, park, church hall, castle or even a library, we just see an exciting new space waiting for a Shakespearean production to be performed.
We all remember how far removed from our daily lives Shakespeare seemed when we were reading his plays in a stuffy classroom, but that's because his work was written to be seen and heard.
And our wandering actors are ready to bring his plays to life for your pleasure, using music, dance and all those lovely words that Shakespeare dreamt up.
