Shakespeare 400: 37 Plays in 365 Days

In case I hadn’t mentioned, it’s a pretty important year for Shakespeare. In case. I hadn’t. Mentioned.

As well as all the ‘official’ events going on, I’ve come up with my own #Shakespeare400 challenge:


I’m going to try to see all the plays this year at least once. Well, they must all be playing somewhere, right?

Why? Well 1) It’s a big Anniversary for Shakespeare, 2) I love Shakespeare, and 3) Why not?!

And feel free to take part in #37Plays365Days. In fact, I could do with some suggestions. Below is a list of all the Shakespeare plays I’ve booked to see. But as you may notice, I’m not seeing them all…yet! And you may also notice, a LOT of them are at the Globe (thank you, comps!)

So if you have any recommendations for productions on West End, Off West End, Regional etc., please comment below, tweet or message me. Even if it’s not the traditionally ‘classic’ version ala Shitfaced Shakespeare, which I am DEFINITELY seeing!
