Founded in 2012 by Emily Gallagher, Courtney Moors, and Rob Sniffin, Barefoot Shakespeare Company is dedicated to bringing Shakespeare's work to a wide, diverse audience. We approach these texts with energy, enthusiasm, and excitement. Striving to create work that is grounded, accessible and applicable, we seek to dissolve the divide between spectator and performer. We explore the canon and produce both full scale as well as shortened, "ready to go" productions. We lead in-school workshops that focus on text analysis and a hands-on approach to understanding and enjoying Shakespeare's words. We believe that Shakespeare belongs to everyone. Thanks so much! Here is the square art work for the show in case this is better on the site and here is the company information as well.
This staging from Barefoot Shakespeare Company and Company of Fools explores how our actions are guided by our deepest fears and foibles and asks what happens to a society when women's voices are silenced.
This world premiere production brings some of Shakespeare’s most popular people, places, and puns together in one comedic foray into “the Forest” in a free staging in Central Park.
