infinite jest


"We loved having Infinite Jest perform in the Polka tent at the Wilderness Festival this summer. A clever mix of original and modern language, live music, song, dance, physical theatre and audience interaction combined to make a perfectly pitched, riotous and witty show for young audiences. Story telling this good deserves a wider audience." Zoe Robinson, Producer, Polka Theatre

“This company's special talent seems to lie in their ability to distil the essence of a Shakespearean story and make it accessible to young audiences, whilst at the same time keeping the adults amused with a more sophisticated layer of funny”

Camilla van Doorn, STET – the English Theatre, The Hague

We produce one-hour adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays for young people.

Incorporating physical comedy, singing, dancing, puppetry and audience participation, our plays remain faithful to the original story and are packed full of Shakespeare’s lines.

We want our young audience to leave our shows feeling that Shakespeare is all about great characters, cracking storytelling and belly-ache laughter.
