Shakespeare’s legacy to successive generations is his firm faith in human potential, exploring our most heartfelt concerns and collective aspirations.

Bell Shakespeare is Australia's national theatre company specialising in the works of the poet and playwright who continues to challenge us to reach beyond our grasp and give us the wherewithal to imagine our future. If we can learn anything from Shakespeare and his contemporaries, it is that we hold within ourselves the power to make choices about who we want to be. Bell Shakespeare believes that our greatest resource is our capacity to imagine and to transform: to picture a different world, to know that it can be one of our own making – and that we can be both its creator and a character within it.
