Shakespeare’s Songs

22 September @ 7:30 pm - 23 September @ 8:30 pm


The York Shakespeare Project was set up in 2001 with the aim of performing all the Bard’s plays in York. It completed that initial mission last year, with a production of The Tempest that toured North Yorkshire before a final performance at York Theatre Royal.

Now the project is marking that achievement by revisiting the original music from several of those plays – and introducing some new songs. performed on 22 and 23 September in the atmospheric setting of York’s oldest church, St Mary’s Bishophill Junior, and on 24 September in the Super Sustainable Centre in Derwenthorpe – two buildings spanning 1000 years of history.
