Live Streaming – The Ghost of Richard III

In the absence of live shows, we’ve experimented with live streaming on YouTube. Now we’ve gone further with a live stream from the Quay Theatre of a full scale show – The Ghost of Richard III. The World Premiere was on Tuesday 21st July at 7.00pm, in support of our local community theatre in this difficult time. It is available on YouTube HERE – and it may also still be on facebook. Go to our live page for more info. LIVE!

The ‘Beyond Shakespeare’ Podcast – A (Sort of) Mission Statement

From the earliest drama in English, to the closing of the theatres in 1642, there was a hell of a lot of drama produced – and a lot of it wasn’t by Shakespeare.

Apart from a few noble exceptions these plays are often passed over, ignored or simply unknown. This podcast presents full audio productions of the plays, fragmentary and extant, that shaped the theatrical world that shaped our dramatic history.

We’re going to produce EVERYTHING. In full, in part, in different ways, live, in studio, in rehearsal, in production. You can listen to our work in progress timeline of all the plays in this timeline.

You help support us by pledging on our patreon account, and get a vote as to what we do next. http://www.patreon.com/beyondshakespeare
