By William Shakespeare
Directed by Martin Berry

In this first co-production between Nottingham Playhouse and Lakeside Arts, Shakespeare’s most controversial play is relocated to the modern day Goose Fair.

Greed, poverty and personal vendettas collide in a production full of music, energy and no-nonsense Nottingham spirit. Launching at Lakeside, the production will undertake an ambitious tour of Nottingham schools before completing the tour at the Playhouse’s Neville Studio.
