Love in Isolation
In times of solitude from their place of sanctuary, artists share some of the greatest words ever written
HELP SUPPORT OUR BELOVED THEATRE.
We recently temporarily closed our doors to the public until further notice. As a charity that receives no regular government subsidy, we desperately need your support, more than ever before.
Please donate any amount, small or large, so that we can continue to thrive in the future.
To celebrate Shakespeare’s 456th birthday, we invited artists to perform Shakespeare’s words (quotes, sonnets, soliloquies or even stage directions!) from their place of social distancing. We hope these words will inspire and comfort you wherever you are. #LoveInIsolation
