Salon: Collective (patron: Miriam Margoyles) of London’s Cockpit Theatre present extracts from the Bard’s best plays, performed by-the-seat-of-the-pants exactly as they would have been in Shakespeare’s day.

And Extempore Theatre, the people behind West End smash hit Showstoppers (‘So polished it defies belief’- Telegraph) bring Rhapsodes: hilarious, touching and completely improvised. Can Shakespeare be funny, accessible and unintimidating? Absolutely. Suitable for aged 10 upwards. Families and students particularly welcome.

  • There will be a 30 minute interval at this event.
