This year, Some Kind of Theatre’s Edinburgh Fringe Shakespeare production is going to be performed at The Vault at Paradise Green (Merchant Street) in weeks 2 and 3 of the festival at 9.15pm, alongside our usual Shakespeare on the Sofa performances. We’re very excited.
We’re making the move from the PBH Free Fringe where we’ve performed for two very enjoyable years to a more traditional venue in order to guarantee ourselves an accessible performance space. We want to ensure that our shows and auditions are available to everyone and, although we’ve had a fantastic time with PBH and admire the amazing work that their organising team do each year, we’ve found that the nature of the Free Fringe’s application and organisation process make it difficult to guarantee whether or not we will end up in a performance space that is accessible to wheelchairs, families, and other audience members, show crew and performers.
We’ve been proud to be able to offer Shakespeare at the Fringe at an affordable price thanks to the PBH Free Fringe over the past two years and, as we make the move to a traditional Fringe venue, we are committed to keeping our ticket prices as low as possible to ensure that our work remains financially accessible. We have arranged generous concession and family ticket prices to safeguard this aim.
And which Shakespeare will be performed this year? we hear you ask. In honour of last year’s production of Julius Caesar, we decided there was no better time to announce this year’s show than the Ides of March (15th March). Stay tuned tomorrow for the announcement.
