Shakespeare Shorts – for kids by kids.  A pre-Fringe 2018 show from Shakespeare at Traquair featuring two knock-about plays.  The Taming of the Shrew sees theatre director Kate’s cast revolting, her producer perplexed and Kate herself in despair. Can Petrucio restore order? Can Kate outwit this manic misogynist?  Modern twist to this traditional tale.  Much Ado About Nothing looks more like an episode of The Great Brexit Bakeoff, but the buns are burning, Beatrice at loggerheads with co-host Benedick and Hero’s harassed. Sinking soufflés and soggy bottoms as the star-crossed lovers carry on baking. Bring your sense of fun!

Age 5+
