Adaptations of Elizabethan/Jacobean Texts

Adaptations of Elizabethan & Jacobean Texts

2011 - 2015

The Watermill Theatre and Schools’ Tours, 2011 - 2015

Macbeth, Hamlet, Romeo + Juliet, Othello, Doctor Faustus

I developed this programme of pared-down, highly accessible productions of Elizabethan and Jacobean texts to support local schools. Performances last only 75 minutes and feature a maximum of three actors to make them as affordable as possible. Since 2011 these shows have reached around 10,000 students.

Directed by Beth Flintoff (Othello, Doctor Faustus), Justin Audibert (Hamlet), Cressida Brown (Macbeth) and Clive Judd (Romeo + Juliet)



‘There’s a real sense of playfulness in Beth Flintoff’s three actor version of Othello … a fast-paced, stripped down production.’

Public Reviews

 ‘Director Beth Flintoff has successfully distilled this powerful drama into a riveting, fast-paced 80 minutes.’
