Enemies. Balconies. Kissing... sausage rolls!? Three idiots perform Shakespeare's tragedy, using only a box of tatty wigs, a floral dress and an airbed they found by the bins. Described as 'like Horrible Histories but funnier' (Primary Times), Rubbish Shakespeare Company are back with an anarchic and joyous family-friendly event. Featuring clowning, slapstick, and clever, mischievous storytelling, this Fringe favourite production is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare (or even theatre itself). Suitable for ages 5-105! 'Delightfully wacky' ***** (Families Edinburgh Magazine). 'They set it up so cleverly it really sings' **** (Daily Record). **** (North West End).
