Guerilla Shakespeare is a regular event in which we cast a Shakespeare play, give the actors the script to learn their lines and then just let them turn up and perform the show with NO rehearsal, direction or prior contact with the rest of the cast.
Events thus far have included completely unrehearsed productions of King Lear at the Westminster Hub, Twelfth Night at Limehouse Town Hall, Romeo and Juliet at the Roundhouse in Camden, Troilus and Cressida at the British Museum and King Henry V at the Wallace Collection.
This short documentary feature was made about the 2012 Guerilla Shakespeare performance of Romeo and Juliet at the Roundhouse:
