2016 is the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. Would be fun to do something

to give people an alternative route in here. (Kids, non-theatre types, anyone who

doesn't already “do” Shakespeare.)

Previous examples:

* Original Practices Shakespeare - in line with history, minimal rehearsal, audience


* Shake in a day - pick a play 7pm Friday and put on the show 7pm Saturday. No time

to learn the text, just cues, so have to improvise

* First Edinburgh Fringe described this as “jazz Shakespeare”

Potentially aim to create something for anniversary in April. If that works could do all

Shakespeare's plays in a week later in the year, say September.
