How We Bring Shakespeare to Life
Stone Soup Shakespeare presents the plays of Shakespeare as if they are brand new stories because to many people they are. We hope that our audiences' first experience with Shakespeare will be lively and entertaining. For those already acquainted with Shakespeare, we hope they can come and see these plays as new stories told again for the first time.
Shakespeare's plays were meant to be seen and heard— not read in a classroom. We strive to mimic the energy and inventiveness of the troupes of players popular in Shakespeare’s day making them accessible to a modern audience.
Our performances are free to the public to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to experience these plays as they come to life.
