Tonight (Tuesday) we perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Reading School and The Merchant of Venice on Wednesday. Tickets will be available to purchase on the door. Bring your family and friends, picnic, suncream, sunglasses, sunhats and something warm to wear when it goes cooler later in the evening. This is a joint venture between GB Theatre Company and The Reading School to help raise funds for the school.

Thursday we perform The Merchant of Venice at the magnificent Chepstow Castle in Monmouthshire. Friday, Saturday & Sunday and we are again taking part in the Bristol Shakespeare Festival performing at Brandon Hill.

Our final shows in July take place at Kentwell Hall, a magnificent Tudor House at Long Melford in Sussex. It really is the perfect setting for open-air Shakespeare. If you are coming to the evening performances, you might want to try the fabulous ‘Kentwell Suppers‘ (see www.kentwell.co.uk for details).

We would suggest booking now as these shows might sell out! [ BOOK ONLINE ]

Review: Romeo & Juliet at Reading School

Tuesday, 12. July 2011 15:43

“It’s a popular play, but somehow, even after many hours of studying it at school, and seeing it performed at least five times, this production brought the characters to life and made the language so much clearer and easier to empathise with – partly because the actors, including Gabriel Thomson as Romeo and Lucy Wray as Juliet, clearly knew the text inside out.
Juliet, in particular, was a joy to watch, with Lucy embodying the pouty, still-immature young woman of Shakespeare’s creation, younger and cheekier than she is often played – a perfect counterpart to Gabriel’s lovestruck, confused and frustrated interpretation of Romeo.”  [ more ]
