A very fun filled production of Coriolanus With a delightful twist into the modern world of social media Great cast and imaginative set design. SHAKESPEARE is STRATFORD and no one does it better this side of the Atlantic than at the Festival .

We were absolutely blown away by the festival’s production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This is very edgy theatre for one with roots In Shakespeare. However it bodes well for the future and new audiences. Not being familiar with the show made it even...More
