Watch a short message from our Co-Founder Matt Pinches, on behalf of GSC

Between the end of March and June 2020, when the UK went into a nationwide lockdown due the coronavirus pandemic, we set about curating a special programme of online events to inspire and entertain.

We were hugely indebted to the GSC team and the many GSC artists who donated their time and talent to this venture.

Every Wednesday across the summer we're looking back at one of our open-air shows from the last 14 years, from Much Ado About Nothing in 2006 to Merry Wives in 2019.

The actors of tomorrow, today!

We work with some fabulously talented young actors at GSC, as part of our Young Company, Saturdays and Trinity Exams.

We're incredibly proud of them, and so every Thursday we showcased their performances recorded at home.

A Chat with Matt

Based on his sell-out talk from 2014 about the early years of Shakespeare's life - FROM COUNTRY LAD TO UPSTART CROW - across 8 episodes our Co-Founder Matt looks at a different theme in young Will's life and how these may have influenced his work.
