As a first-timer, I could not have wished for a better introduction to the Fringe. The two 'after-Shakespeare' plays are funny, provocative and thoroughly engaging. Each actor performs one playlet, holding the stage and singlehandedly creating an entire cast upon it. We (I went with a more Fringe au fait companion) came out discussing nuances and teasing out the themes. Highly satisfactory! Thank you.

Easily the best show we've seen on the Fringe so far in 2021 these monologues imagine what happened to Shakespeare's characters after the plays finish. Hugely entertaining and well acted in a beautiful venue

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!
