WOMEN OF SHAKESPEARE

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we brought Shakespeare's most iconic women to life at Redbridge Drama Centre.

 

Audiences joined Cleopatra, Katherine, and Lady Macbeth for an exciting journey from Ancient Egypt to Renaissance Italy and Medieval Scotland. Along the way, these strong women posed the question of what it means to be women in a man's world. 

 

Join us, and let's raise a glass to these literary characters who have challenged us and captured our imaginations and our stages for more than 400 years.

AUDIENCE REACTIONS

''Wonderful way to celebrate International Women's Day!!"

"Shakespeare meets Brecht! Best ever."

"If we do Shakespeare play at school, I'm gonna act in it."
