Shakespeare’s Worst – Bristol Shakespeare Festival

Portfolio image:
A highlight of this year’s Bristol Shakespeare Festival is this, BSF’s second ever in-house production – and a corker it looks, too. Written by multi-Emmy-award-winning writer and Simpsons showrunner Mike Reiss and internationally renowned scholar and performer Nick Newlin, Shakespeare’s Worst makes its international debut at the newly-designated Southville Playhouse, a.k.a. the former Methodist Church on Stackpool Road, with acclaimed Bristol director Ed Viney at the helm.

PACIFISTS AND PROTESTERS

To mark the centenary of World War One, we created an original piece of theatre, exploring the lives and points of view of those that protested against the conflict. Funded by the Heritage Lottery, the piece included a new play, A Dangerous Woman (shortlisted for The Adrian Pagan new Writing Award) and a specially devised movement piece, inspired by the words of war-objectors. The production toured venues around the south west, receiving ecstatic audience and critical responses.

“A gripping piece of theatre, powerfully told” (Stage Talk Magazine)
“Of urgent national importance” (Martin Large, Green Party Councillor for Stroud)
