William Shakespeare’s work changed our theatre, language and even, some say, the perceptions we have of ourselves. His 154 sonnets published in 1609 document his passions, both intellectual and personal. They inform and merge with many of his plays.

Using the sonnets as springboards into his creative and personal life, this new devised piece explores the theatre, acting, passions and politics of Shakespeare’s life.

China
This production will tour to Shanghai Grand Theatre on 1 & 2 April: www.shgtheatre.com; National Centre for Performing Arts, Beijing on 6 April, and Chongqing Guotai Arts Centre on 8 April.
