We're hugely excited to be bringing Bard back to the Old Fitz," said Director Oliver Burton.

"It's a perfect space for us to transform into the courts, battlefields, taverns and chapels of Shakespeare's world."

Using no more than a word from the audience, (though mid-show shouts, jeers and animal noises are highly encouraged) the company weaves the tropes, language and scenarios of Shakespeare, infused with a touch of our time, into long-form impro fun. It's Elizabethan fun on the run, comedy by the seat of their"¦ breeches!

But even though it's all made up on the spot by some of Sydney's most talented improvisers, rehearsals are compulsory, warns Burton. "We've been in continual practice since our last appearance. Drilling the language, discovering the imagery, developing character: that's the kind of groundwork that allows us to let go and just play on the night."

"We love Shakespeare and in this 400th year since his death, it's our pleasure to honour him with the kind of silly, irreverent approach we think he would have loved."

Bard to the Bone plays on the 4th and 25th of April at 8PM.

Be there, or be thou a most common shape / Horribly dull and ever four-sided!
