Devised by Hotspur Theatre Company, and directed by Tam Williams, Not Half Bard is an hour-long comedy from the Bard's best bits, with lashings of mirth, music and merriment!

The actors have failed to show up for the evening’s performance, and the frazzled stage management team find themselves hurriedly trying to prove that it’s just words, words, words, and that all the world’s a stage! Besides, not all are born great, or achieve greatness… some have greatness thrust upon them.

“there are not enough superlatives to say how much we enjoyed Hotspur’s brilliant performance”

“The acting was brilliant"

"A very talented group of actors”

“We'll have no hesitation in recommending Hotspur to the world!”

“Your energy, artistry and sheer personality came over in spades.”

“It was so cleverly thought out and staged perfectly.”


“a fabulous, hilarious romp through most of Will's works.”
