Chicken Shop Shakespeare



A great friend of mine Lladel Bryant and some of his colleagues have set up a Theater Company called Chicken Shop Shakespeare. They capture "a series of performances from the works of Shakespeare, filmed in contemporary settings". 

They have taken the industry by storm having recently been featured on the RSC website and are receiving great acclaim from other well established fellow Actors. Below is a selection of their fabulous work and here is the link to their YouTube account: http://www.youtube.com/user/CSshakespeare

I personally think this is a breath of fresh air, its innovative and just what this tired industry needed. Shakespeare can seem so intimidating as the language is very different to modern English, but somehow when acted out against a modern setting, the language seems to translate itself and becomes much more interesting and accessible to those who would otherwise not have bothered with it. I cannot wait to lay one down myself, although I do keep bugging Lladel to do one in his proper Yorkshire accent - we all know Shakespeare sounds better with a regional twang!
If you like the clips drop them a line or get in touch with them if you have suggestions for scenes/ asides/ soliloquies and they will endeavour to film them - contact the team at:  chickenshopshakespeare@gmail.com or at:  @CSshakespeare
Well done guys
