REVIEWS (from Summer 2017)

“…an evening of pure theatrical pleasure.” British Theatre Guide

" absolute delight last night. Stylish Shakespeare as the sun goes down; can’t really fault it" Audience member

"They just get better and better... tangible Shakespeare for everyone"


Our court shall be a little academe,

Still and contemplative in living art.

It is summer 1939, and with the prospect of war looming, four raffish men escape the bustle of London for the quiet of the Sussex coast; the perfect rural idyll in which to immerse themselves in their books and poetry. However their scholarly devotion is quickly put to the test when four effervescent ladies arrive for exactly the same reason.

Soon the frustrations of the love-struck couples spill out into the local town, infecting everyone from school teachers to tea shop owners; even the outrageous Spanish count Don Armado di Adriano, isn’t safe!

Director Tom Littler (multiple OffWestEnd Best Director Nominations) returns to GSC following his triumphs with Much Ado About NothingThe Wind in the Willows and Twelfth Night. Tom is currently the Artistic Director of Jermyn Street Theatre, in London’s West End. Taking inspiration from the artists of the famous Bloomsbury Group, he and designer Neil Irish have relocated the play from Northern Spain to the idyllic Sussex coast on the eve of the Second World War.
