Classic stories, rollercoaster emotions, beautiful words and spontaneous, unpredictable performances created before your eyes!

Shake-Scene Shakespeare are currently the only UK theatre company performing from cued parts – meaning that the actors receive solely their lines and cues and (with the exception of dances and fights) will not rehearse together before stepping on stage to perform for you.

Why? Because this is how Shakespeare’s own actors did it! Expect surprises, laughs and controlled creative chaos – no two performances are ever the same.

Shake-Scene perform online and in person, and have covered the full Shakespeare canon as well as plays by Shakespeare’s contemporary writers – the exploration never ends…

Presenting two plays showing two sides of love: As You Like It and Anthony and Cleopatra – see one, see both, come and join us for our Shakespeare North Playhouse debut!

Do not miss this unique theatrical adventure, accessible for all ages, whether you’re into Shakespeare or not, because: “It’s Shakespeare, Jim, but not quite as we know it!”


Is this just Shakespeare as it would have been done or is it Shakespeare as it should be done?” – LondonTheatre1, Taming of the Shrew

I don’t think Shake-Scene could ever do a bad production, but this is one of their very best” – @mobile_theatre, A Winter’s Tale

Shake-Scene Shakespeare’s production of The Taming of the Shrew injects new life into this 16th-century comedy… refreshingly accessible” – Camden New Journal
