Topics I've Started

Fringe Shakespeare

29 January 2014 - 04:22 PM

Having seen both large scale and intimate Shakespeare productions of late, I have described I much prefer small scale productions. I have booked for the Gatehouse production of Richard III next month, I was wondering if anyone was aware of other works on show at small venues in London.

I find that large sets and a lot of space distract me, and if I'm too far from the stage I don't feel engaged. I find Shakespeare pretty hard to digest but I'm determined to change that!
