About The Three Inch Fools

The Three Inch Fools are an innovative touring theatre company acclaimed for their fast-paced and musically driven approach to Shakespeare.
They have built a reputation for staging bold and vibrant productions - a fast-paced, musically-driven style, using all sorts of different instruments, plenty or multi-roling and many a quick costume change along the way. For each production, they create a completely original musical soundtrack collaborating with rising star composer Stephen Hyde. The Three Inch Fools soundtrack moves between folk music and world music to classical, rock, pop and opera - and everything in between!
The Three Inch Fools specialise in bringing Shakespeare to life in innovative and unexpected ways, through bold story telling and innovative sound-worlds. Their imaginative style is certain to delight and surprise those already familiar with the bard's plays, and to call out to those who have yet to discover them.
