If you didn't get a chance to come out & see our production of The Duchess of Malfi, you can still buy a programme.  Contact us and request one - only  £2 +p&p.  The essay by Dr Martin Wiggins alone is worth the money!


Read Dr Pete Kirwan's review of our archival recording.

Mason Croft is the home of The Shakespeare Institute (part of the University of Birmingham) in Stratford-upon-Avon.


We'll be performing our script-in-hand performance of The Bloody Banquet in the Lecture Hall, here on 9th June.

Unfortunately, due to lack of funds, our summer production of Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus has had to be pushed back to next year.


We are hopeful that in this Year of Shakespeare, we will be able to mount a production of Titus Andronicus.  Admittedly, this is a little outside our remit, but things being as they are, we thought we'd go with the flow - just this once. ;)


We are hoping to be joined on this endeavour by our good friends at STAGEFIGHT, Raph Aldis and Kaz Luckins.
