‘Shakespeare always seems to have something to say to us’ – Nelson Mandela
Shakespeare in the Squares is a new, not-for-profit touring theatre company that will stage a Shakespeare play in London garden squares for one night in each venue every summer. The productions are tailored to the individual garden squares, and we work with the garden committees and other local organisations to create a unique community celebration around the play. Our aim is to provide a showcase for talented young theatre practitioners and we intend to introduce our audiences to the stars of the future. We pay the actors Equity recommended rates and the productions will be innovative, exciting and of the highest professional standard. Productions are funded through a combination of ticket sales, grants and sponsorship from local businesses and organisations.
