Artistic Director Gregory Doran revives his unique version of Shakespeare’s kaleidoscopic poem using narration, music and puppetry.

This little-known gem was Shakespeare’s first bestseller, weaving together comedy, tragedy and beautiful poetry to tell the raunchy story of Venus and her obsession with handsome Adonis.

Created in collaboration with Little Angel Theatre, the home of British puppetry, Venus & Adonis is ‘witty, erotic and ingenious’ (Guardian).
