We’re delighted to announce that John Hoggarth will be directing our new Introduction to Shakespeare, an interactive workshop exploring Shakespeare’s life and works.

John is Co-Director of Iron Shoes, an independent theatre company developing new work. From 2003-2008, John was Co-Artistic Director of National Youth Theatre. As a writer, John has had work produced for television, radio and the stage and developed a reputation for developing burgeoning comedy talent. Recent collaborations have led to a Perrier nomination, and the winning of both ‘So Think You’re Funny?”  and the BBC new talent award.

Box Clever’s Introduction to Shakespeare is part of our 2012 Shakespeare Programme. Playing alongside Romeo and Juliet, the Introduction to Shakespeare is aimed at students in Years 7 and 8. Both performances will tour to theatres and schools across the UK in the Spring.
