The performances were held over the past week at the John Mackintosh Hall theatre.

Over the week the Company held two workshops with more than 40 children participating as part of the Gibraltar Cultural Services development and educational programme.

The workshops provided methods on how to understand and analyse Shakespearean texts and techniques on stage fighting, and were held at the Bayside Drama Studio for middle and secondary students.
