We are delighted to announce the launch of The GB Theatre Company. We are a British-based theatre company, producing plays both indoor and open-air.
In our first summer season, we are presenting Shakespeare in the open air playing in the magnificent cloisters of Norwich Cathedral, the magical gardens of Ramme Gaard in Norway as well as other gardens and venues throughout the UK and Europe (to be confirmed).
We have decided to start with Elizabethan costumes and to allow the beauty of the venues to integrate with our design. In this way it is the poetry, ideas and language which stands out in our productions, supported by some of the finest acting and directorial talents that have addressed these great plays.
We hope you enjoy our launch season of As You Like It and The Merry Wives of Windsor, the great pastoral comedy paired with the prose comedy of the middle classes. Tradition holds that Merry Wives was written for Elizabeth herself. Her wish fulfilled by our great poet, we have the opportunity to enjoy the same laughs over 400 years later.
“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players”.
We totally agree which is why we have formed The GB Theatre Company.
We will make our tour announcements here including cast details, venues, ticket offers and availability, publish reviews and a few show photos. Please bookmark the page and tell your friends about us.
