Drunk) by up-and-coming writers along with fresh takes on classics such as a post-modern versions of Macbeth,Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and Merchant of Venice. Engaging audiences with humour to explore the theatrical medium is one of the Company's chief goals. Especially when tackling serious issues like the war in Iraq or the tragic story of Hamlet. We want our audiences to have memorable visit to theatre that will make them want to go back.
Our company mission with regards to our Shakespeare Sessions (Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet and The Merchant of Venice) is to present an exciting synthesis of a scholarly review that includes analyses of major themes, discussion and performance that has the primary goal of aiding learners in their leaving and junior cert examinations with an emphasis on clarity and a playful engagement with the text that allows the young audience to learn while enjoying themselves.
