The Three Inch Fools

The Three Inch fools in action

The Fools do Shakespeare differently - a fast-paced, musically-driven style, using all sorts of different instruments, plenty of multi-roling and many a quick costume change along the way.

In August and brand new to The Courts, we introduce The Three Inch Fools with their musical approach to performing Shakespeare. Expect a fast-paced, musically-driven show, using all sorts of different instruments with many a quick costume change along the way!

The Three Inch Fools grew from a love of Shakespeare and his plays, but they want to show him off to everyone, and excite a whole new generation of Shakespeare lovers to get to know his plays in all their vibrancy. Come and see what they do - whatever your take on Shakespeare (whether you've never heard a word or read all his plays ten times) they promise to open your eyes!

The Three Inch Fools present 'Macbeth'

Thursday 15 August 2019, 7pm-9pm

Macbeth, a valiant warrior, becomes consumed by greed when three witches tell of a prophecy that he will one day become king of Scotland. Urged on by his scheming wife, Macbeth takes fate into his own hands, setting in motion an ever more desperate struggle for power. Will the rise of a tyrant see the downfall of a once victorious man?
