Following a critically acclaimed London run, DOING SHAKESPEARE now goes on tour. Six actors performing six different plays will do Shakespeare as Shakespeare has never been done before. David Spicer’s hilariously mad Shakespearean mash-up will have you rolling in the aisles and the Bard turning in his grave.
