Shakespeare in Shoreditch

Charity description

Shakespeare in Shoreditch logo
Shakespeare in Shoreditch is a festival that connects the 21st century Shoreditch with its rich cultural past.
Become a Shakespeare in Shoreditch Member for a donation of £75. 

At its heart, Shakespeare in Shoreditch is about inspiring creativity through commissioning new writing, producing high qualities plays and performances and delivering mad-cap challenges such as the Annie’s 1000 Plays project, which saw playwright Annie Jenkins write 1000 plays in 10 days thanks to members of the public. Influenced by his universal plays the festival reimagines what the Bard might be writing about if he lived in Shoreditch today. From family feuds to London’s housing crisis, Shakespeare in Shoreditch creates a poetic dialogue about the changing face of East London.
As a charity we are dependant on public funding and donations to keep a float and everything we raise goes directly into our activities: commissioning new writing, producing plays with britain’s most promising directors, programming engaging talks and workshops, and inspiring creativity. 

Charity No: 1161912
