This is a fundraising event in aid of Shakespeare in Italy. The new company seeks to enhance experience and international understanding of the works of Shakespeare and in particular appreciation of the influence of the Italian Renaissance, culture and philosophers on all of his writing. We aim to explore this with actors and artists through performance in the UK, Italy and beyond, as well as via a programme of education and outreach. Shakespeare in Italy is working to form permanent relationships with theatres both in Italy and in the United Kingdom. The company also plans to work with educational institutions and community groups, particularly those for whom English is their second language.
