Welcome to the Work Bard / Play Bard Application form. Talk to us about why you want to work with us.

It will take less than 5 minutes to apply, and applications close at 5pm on 28th May.

Sunday 7th June is the day it will all be kicking off and, this time our theme is Heroes and Villains. 

The night will be a rare opportunity to probe the contemporary relevance of Shakespeare, and play with fresh interpretations in front of a sell-out crowd of Shakespeare fans. We want to answer a simple question: How can we use Shakespeare to learn about today’s society?

We’re looking for all types of artists doing all types of work. Whether it’s original practice, or totally irreverent, single-sex theatre companies or gender-flipped scenes, comic re-imaginings of the Bard’s characters or experimental interpretations of a monologue… or just a great straight performance of a scene that explores the theme.

It will take less than 5 minutes to apply!
