Wow! What great shows! The actors have such a wonderful energy and getting to see the two shows back to back was such a treat! Really beautifully performed and you don’t need to know the plays they are based on! I’ve never seen or read Hamlet, only briefly knowing the story but I followed it easily and was transfixed throughout!

Bard Heads is really engaging, stimulating theatre, done with consummate skill and panache - highly entertaining, witty, thought-provoking accounts of what life is like for a few of the characters from Shakespeare's best-known plays, after the plays have finished. The 2 versatile, gifted solo actors play several roles whilst they tell their stories, and the physical and vocal transformations are beautifully done. You don't need to know your Shakespeare to enjoy these pieces, although it helps if you know the basic story of the play. The venue is also perfect - a fine large room in an elegant Georgian House. You'll struggle to find a more rewarding hour and a half of theatre on the Fringe this year!
