‘Shakespeare is Overrated’

Shakespeare is Overrated

Shakespeare isn’t for you, right? He’s old and stuffy and the language is weird and he doesn’t write anything about YOU?

Well, Arcola Theatre is developing a brand new production with young people, reimagining Shakespeare for diverse, contemporary voices.

Run by professional writers and theatre-makers, this is your opportunity to tell Shakespeare what you think of him, to write and perform the kind of Shakespeare that YOU want to see.
