a musical approach to performing Shakespeare


The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors equipped with all manner of musical instruments, performing our highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays.

We perform Shakespeare in almost any kind of setting, both indoors and outdoors, and in all sorts of places. To date, we have performed Shakespeare in castles, stately homes, gardens, churches, cathedrals, market places, village greens, an old fire station, a medieval crypt, a crowded pub and a garlic farm – all the world's a stage!

This year we are touring the UK with our exciting new productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream and Hamlet - take a look at our touring dates here.
