Announcement number three!

After the huge success of Work Bard Play Bard in October, we’re over-the-moon to announce that it’s coming back! Work Bard Play Bard 2 will be back at Pleasance Islington on 15th February, where the theme will be… LOVE.

Seems fitting, given it’s the night after Valentine’s Day. And Shakespeare had a thing or two to say on the topic.

So, we’re calling out to actors, companies, directors, and all manner of performing artists to take part in London’s only Shakespearean Showcase night.

The event begins at 7.30pm (note the new start time), and runs at 1h30 plus interval. As usual, there’ll be plenty of time in the bar afterwards for artists and audiences to chat about what they’ve seen.

You can apply to take part right now using this application form, or email rianna@smoothfacedgentlemen.com if you want to find out more.

Confirmed companies include two favourites from last time, The Merely Players and The Handlebards (both of whom you can catch in The Shakespeare Shuffle), plus the rather wonderful Passion In Practice. Keep your eye on our twitter or sling your email address onto our mailing list to hear as more companies are announced.

And remember… the last Work Bard Play Bard sold out, and applicants were over-subscribed 6-to-1, so be sure to get in early, whichever side of the (proverbial) footlights you hope to be!

Tickets go on sale very soon – watch this space! Update: tickets are on sale now! Get ’em while they’re hot!
