Making Sense of Shakespeare

"Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt"

Measure For Measure (Act I, sc iv)



The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)
By Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield

October 26th-28th - Stantonbury Campus Theatre

Fortune’s Fool Theatre Company are delighted to announce the dates for our forthcoming production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)

Prepare for a gut-wrenching roller-coaster ride through all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays as, using only 3 actors, 2 silly wigs and a guitar, we present all of Shakespeare’s greatest works (and a couple of less great ones too) in one unforgettable evening.

Whether you’re a real Bardologist (Shakepeare geek), or you don’t know your Coriolanus from your Othello; we’re guaranteed to put a smile on your face, and promise thou faithfully that this is Shakespeare as you’ve NEVER seen it before...

What Teachers say...

Trevor Harris

“We are happy to whole heartedly recommend the work of this company. We’ve used their expertise for the past two years in planning, preparing and devising performances using KS4 students for the Shakespeare Schools Festival. The outcomes from these projects gave students significantly enhanced skills, knowledge and understanding of the Shakespearean plays through the practical process of taking the work from the page and putting it on the stage.”
