Shakespeare by Night






Shakey is back. 
And he’s back BY NIGHT. 

Selected Shakespeare scenes lit only by candlelight. That is the original concept behind ‘Shakespeare by Night’.

These scenes include a few classics and a few lesser knowns. All submitted and devised by people in the industry, curated by an all-female production team.

The maiden performance of Shakespeare by Night played to a sell-out crowd in a warehouse space, Flow Studios in Camperdown. This time, The Fitz will plunge into darkness and a wealth of local talent will bring Shakey back for just one night. 

“Shakespeare By Night is raw and immediate, an exciting night in the theatre.

It’s Shakespeare at its most elemental – actors, audience and language. I loved it.”
- James Evans, Associate Director, Bell Shakespeare
