"It's such a glorious show and we can't wait to share it with audiences."

Daniel and Tamara took up the roles of Co-Artistic Directors in June 2023. They announced their first season of plays in January this year.

Love's Labour's Lost is the first show to open, but there's just five weeks to catch it. Hot on its heels, is The Buddha of Suburbia, which you can see in the Swan Theatre from 18 April. 

You can also book now for The Merry Wives of Windsor, The School for Scandal and Northern Ballet's Romeo & Juliet in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Kyoto and Pericles (Tamara's RSC directorial debut) in the Swan Theatre, and English and King Lear (in Ukrainian) at The Other Place. 

And if you're not in Stratford there's the chance to see English at the Kiln Theatre, London and Pericles at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater.
