Join multi Off West End Award nominated Grassroots Shakespeare London for a sensual, six week Summer of Love as they perform two of Shakespeare’s classics in rep.
Think you can live without sex? A group of knights make that mistake until their period of celibacy is rudely interrupted by the arrival of the Princess of France and her enticing ladies. A delightful romp and one of Shakespeare’s most bawdy romantic comedies packed full of lewd jokes, Love’s Labour’s Lost is lustful frolic through the countryside.
Erotic, tantalizing and intoxicating, Romeo And Juliet follows Shakespeare’s most famous star-cross’d lovers, caught between their warring families and a driving, all-consuming desire for each other.
Fresh from their recent 5 Star, sell-out rep season, the company will premiere their stagings of both plays, devised entirely by the ensemble specifically for the Old Red Lion Theatre. Grassroots Shakespeare London is an original practices company well known for its high quality performances, its policy of working without a director and their shows being devised from scratch by each new ensemble. They specialise in identifying the next top talent and producing stripped back, textually rigorous productions for new audiences.
