One by one, over nine days, Forced Entertainment perform every Shakespeare play ever written.


This series of 36 intimate and lovingly made miniatures are played out on a one metre table‑top using a collection of un‑extraordinary everyday objects.

In Complete Works the dynamic force of narrative is explored in a simple and idiosyncratic summary of Shakespeare’s comedies, tragedies, histories and late plays, creating worlds as vivid as they are strange.

Forced Entertainment are a group of six artists who have been making performance since 1984 – questioning, pushing and breaking theatre to see what can be built from the wreckage. Based in Sheffield, UK, their work has been seen all over the world.
