The list of productions varies on each service and may change over time, but viewers can currently enjoy shows from our 2019 summer season, including our gender-flipped production of The Taming of the Shrew, or go further back to Paapa Essiedu's turn as Hamlet, Antony Sher in King Lear, or Christopher Luscombe's First World War-era Love's Labour's Lost.

Much Ado About Nothing

Our 2022 production, directed by Roy Alexander Weise, is now available on BBC iPlayer. The show played in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, then was broadcast on BBC Four in April.

In a futuristic world, two very different couples fall in love – but who is really pulling the strings? With dastardly plots, hilarious slapstick and some of Shakespeare’s wittiest dialogue, this story of matchmaking and manipulation is the perfect way to celebrate the joy of theatre. You can also listen to BBC Radio 4's Behind the Scenes episode about the show.
