Students rehearsing in the Piazza

All the World’s a Stage - Shakespeare on the Piazza

On Friday 22 June and Saturday 23 June, the Elysium Theatre Company (formed of Exeter students past and present) will be performing abridged versions of Henry IV and Richard III in the Piazza at the university (1.30pm on Friday, 11am and 3pm on Saturday).

It’s all part of The Wars of the Roses Project where the company will be performing five Shakespeare plays (including those above) in their entirety at Buckland Abbey on 11 and 12 August.

The Wars of the Roses cast performed during the visit from Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh’s visit on Wednesday 2 May. The event marked the official opening of the Forum, an exciting new development at the heart of the University’s Streatham Campus.

Tickets for the Exeter Piazza performances are £5/£4 (£8 for both plays on Saturday) and are available from the Northcott Theatre now (01392 493493).
