We are a London based cooperative theatre company running workshops in schools to make drama and Shakespeare fun and accessible to young people.

Our workshops focus on immersing the children in the history and times of the Elizabethan era in which Shakespeare was writing.

Head of the company, Josephine Toole, Graduated with a degree in Construction and Design and has designed and helped to make each actors' authentic costumes. The workshop encourages the children to really notice the historical components of Elizabethan dress while having the opportunity to try on their own traditional ruff.
In addition, we have a Lute player who will accompany the workshop with authentic music and introduce the children to this traditional instrument.

We focus largely on text and stock characters and how these techniques were used by Shakespeare to create drama. Through games, skits and even puppetry, we engage the children with a vibrant introduction into the work and times of William Shakespeare.
