The Company

LOVE&MADNESS are London based but operate on a nationwide basis with the aim of bringing classical theatre to a younger and wider audience. They have presented Shakespearean productions that re-locate the plays making them accessible and exciting to a contemporary audience whilst remaining faithful to the original text. Over the last few years they have toured newly commissioned adaptations of Hard Times and Wuthering Heights and now after last year's Oliver Twist and La Ronde , they are about to open a four play repartory season at Riverside Studios, including Shakespeare's Macbeth - performed in the unique, fast moving, bold and above all, accessible style that LOVE&MADNESS have been developing and perfecting in the last five years.

Workshops would be tailored to cover any age-range or number of attendees, and can last from between one hour and a whole day. Prices start at £150 + VAT for up to 2 hours.
