If only more companies had the guts to take such risks
Plays to see *****
A privilege to be there, clearly exceptional and important work.

Flute was set up in 2014. We create intimate productions of Shakespeare for inclusive audiences. Our shows strip away the pomp and ceremony of Shakespeare’s plays to reveal the essence of their humanity with an intense and original theatricality.
The Tempest was created in 2014 as a co-production with the Royal Shakespeare Company and Ohio State University. The production is made specifically for an audience of children with autism and their families. The show has performed in the UK, US and Spain where it has been translated into Spanish. In London it has performed at the Bloomsbury Festival, the Festival of Love, Southbank Centre and the Orange Tree Theatre Richmond. In March 2016, the production will be performed in Catalan at Teatre LLiure.
Hamlet was created in 2015 as a co-production with English Touring Theatre. It has performed in Poland, Romania, Germany, Spain and at Kronborg Castle, Elsinore in Denmark. In December 2016 the production played for four weeks in London at Trafalgar Studios.
We are currently developing a new adaptation of 12th Night.
