About Us

Aims and Objectives:

  • Run 48hr plays each term, and larger productions throughout the year.
  • Run a series of smaller projects that our members can get involved with. These include workshops on how to handle Elizabethan text, film-making projects, academic debates and socials!
  • Open to new talent and new ideas, giving you the opportunity to build up your theatrical experience.

Here at ShakeCo, we have a focus on Shakespeare and his contemporaries - recent productions include 'Macbeth', 'The Taming of the Shrew', and 'The Duchess of Malfi'!

We run a 48hr play in each term, and larger productions throughout the year. '48 hour plays' are rehearsed, produced, and finally performed over a 48hr intensive period. Our larger 'Found Space' and Cathedral productions have a bigger budget and have the opportunity to run at full length!

We also have a series of smaller projects that our members can get involved with. These include workshops on how to handle Elizabethan text, film-making projects, academic debates, local school's performance initiative, and socials!

To keep updated on these and other exciting activities, like us on Facebook and join our members' group. We're always looking for ideas and proposals, so if there is something Shakespearian you have always wanted to do, let us know! We are always open to new talent and new ideas, giving you the opportunity to build up your theatrical experience.

If you want to get in contact with us, you can go to any of our committee directly, or via the Facebook page.
