Shakespeare Nights
Thursday 01 August 2019, 19:00
To Friday 02 August 2019


This year, summer nights will be brought alive with Shakespeare’s most famous story of love at first sight and his sparkling comedy of misunderstandings. Exploding onto the stage with passion and verve, Groundlings Theatre Company brings together a thrilling ensemble in classic dress to present the trials and tribulations of love.

Romeo and Juliet

“Two households, both alike in dignity,

In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,

Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.”

What if your first true love was someone you’d been told to hate?

Ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents, two young people will risk everything to be together.

Shakespeare’s classic love story grips its audience with intense longing and passion. Marked by an irresistible desire for change, watch as our hero’s verge on a precipice. Will they be the next generation torn by apart historic quarrels or will they spark a revolution?

Much Ado About Nothing

“Let me be that I am

And seek not to alter me.”

Packed with intrigue, double crossing and plenty of laughter, Much Ado About Nothing still remains one of Shakespeare’s finest comedies.

Following the turbulent romances between Hero and Claudio and Beatrice and Benedict.

While young lovers Claudio and Hero have their forthcoming nuptials threatened by the resentful scheming of a Prince, marriage seems out of the question for reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick in this witty comedy about the never ending search for perfect love.

An exploration of what loyalty, chivalry, and true love really mean asking audiences to challenge their own perceptions of relationships.

Presented in traditional Tudor dress with Romeo & Juliet played by all male cast as it would have been in Shakespeare's time.
