We're pleased to offer three plays this season


Bad Quarto Productions is committed to developing a better understanding of the work of William Shakespeare by shedding a light on the dingy corners of Shakespearean text. We do this especially by performing the rarely done plays of the English Renaissance using the staging conditions available to an early modern playing company.

This means performing both the lesser known versions of Shakespeare's plays (like the 1594 quarto The Taming of a Shrew and the earliest printed version of Hamlet alongside the works of other writers that shared the stage, like the anonymous 1608 play The Merry Devil of Edmonton and the early Beaumont and Fletcher play Cupid's Revenge.

We also perform new plays and modern plays (because new plays and contemporary works were a prominent feature of the early modern stage) using Shakespeare-esque staging conditions to help us better understand these plays, and the nature of theatre: both Shakespeare's and our own.
