Hilarious show with jokes for all ages. A wonderful reimagining of the Bards work brimming with energy, fun and downright silliness! Highly recommended!!

Shakespeare for Kids: Fools and Bottoms (UK) Directed by Sacha Slip. Mash up of the works of you-know-who by three engaging clowns especially for primary age audiences. Super enjoyable for adults too. Especially loved when we became and army and threw paper darts. “A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool” – great stuff to start the day! 3 1/2 Remnants-of-Cheese stick from me – the kids will love it.

Great fun - lots of laughs, lots of energy and a surprising amount of actual Shakespeare. Clever enough to make adults laugh and my kids(3 and 6) both loved it - especially throwing paper airplanes at Bottom. Highly recommended.
