Support New Swan Shakespeare Festival

Support New Swan Shakespeare Festival 


New Swan Shakespeare Festival is dedicated to the research and production of Shakespearean plays and relevant theatrical works. We are intent on recreating the immediacy of Shakespeare’s work and examining its relevance in the 21st century. Shakespeare’s theater was a theater for the people rather than an elite cultural event and, in the spirit of inclusion, we are dedicated to sharing our work with the widest possible cross-section of our community.
