All the Street’s a Stage

The energy and vibrancy of the prop-rich set and how the actors pulled the stories out of their surroundings…The pace, physicality and energy of the stories were lovely, and I was struck by how well the actors brought this into the setting, the families watching in the foyer all had a really good time being entertained

All the Street’s a Stage

COMMISSIONED BY ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY
WRITTEN BY MARK WORTH
DIRECTED BY SARAH WORTH

The Forest of Arden arrived on the streets of Stratford, when Highly Sprung was commissioned by the RSC to work on a new piece of interactive street performance for
Shakespeare’s birthday celebrations, inspired by the play As You Like It.

Two madcap ‘theatricals’ invited the gathered street audience to co-create the performance. Audience members become directors, lighting designers, costumiers and at
times, the stars of the show. A director’s chair for the director, a torch for the lighting designer and a full set of costumes and wigs to choose from for the performers.

Armed with Shakespeare’s most memorable moments, love, laughter, marriage, murder and everything in between, All the Street’s a Stage was a highly interactive, funny and engaging improvised performance in celebration of the Bard.
