Shakespeare in the Squares

This Year

It is with great regret that we have postponed this year’s planned production of The Tempest until Summer 2021. We have taken this decision in the interests of the safety of cast and crew because of current Government advice to avoid the social interactions and travel that the audition and rehearsal processes would inevitably involve.

What People Have to Say

When I first heard about Shakespeare in the Squares, my instant reaction was, ‘That is a marvellous idea; why hasn’t anyone done it before?’ To take William Shakespeare, whose timeless plays always have something important to say about the human condition, into idyllic gardens and other iconic spaces, offers a great opportunity to engage new and non-traditional audiences of all ages. It also provides talented young practitioners with a showcase to display their skills at an early stage in their careers, and the Company’s aim to do this is to be hugely welcomed. I am delighted to support this imaginative and ambitious initiative and hope that it will quickly spread far-and-wide.
