For the sixteenth year in a row, and their sixth as affiliates of the Royal Shakespeare Company, The Inn Theatre Company are once again bringing The Bard to Dartmouth Castle. Every year they bring something slightly different to Shakespeare’s work but always keeping true to the text and, as far as possible, true to the period...apart from the massively successful modern(ish)-dress production of The Merry Wives of Windsor in 2015!

The company are no strangers to the darker side of the canon, having brought Macbeth, King Lear and Romeo and Juliet to life on the stage at the Castle: but this play presented its own set of unique  conundrums that needed to be solved, not least of which was finding a group of actors with the skill and heft to bring these characters to life in a believable, yet entertaining, fashion. No pressure then!
