London’s only Shakespeare Scratch night returns for a unique night featuring some of the country’s most exciting theatre groups, hosted by Smooth Faced Gentlemen.
Come and enjoy a Bard day’s night with an eclectic platter of different scenes, monologues, and extracts of Shakespeare’s work, each created in a different style by a different group.
This time, the theme is love.
Featuring winners of the IdeasTap “Work Bard / Play Bard” contest, plus scenes from several award-winning companies, including The Handlebards, The Merely Players, Joue le Genre, and of course, Smooth Faced Gentlemen.
“Go bard… or go home.”
Smooth Faced Gentlemen are the UK’s only all-female Shakespeare company, and the culprits behind the triple-award-winning paint-soaked smash-hit Titus Andronicus at Edinburgh Fringe 2013 and York Theatre Royal.
