Shakespeare in Italy

Shakespeare in Italy is a new cultural association designed to promote and perform Shakespeare’s plays in their original language, in the country that was such an inspiration to him. The appeal of Shakespeare’s genius is timeless and universal, and no fewer than 13 of his plays are set wholly or partly in Italy. Shakespeare in Italy is the creation of English actors Mary Chater and Julian Curry and Italian theatre manager Sandro Pascucci.  The company comprises three elements: TheatreCourses and Workshops. All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players.
