A journey through Shakespeare’s best-loved plays with Peter Evans as your guide.
Duration: 90 minutes (no interval)
Join Artistic Director Peter Evans for a celebration of The Neilson Nutshell, and an exploration of Peter’s favourite Shakespeare plays.
Find out why we named our theatre the ‘Nutshell’, explore power and tyranny in Macbeth and King Lear, grief in King John, and love with Beatrice and Benedick, Viola, Rosalind and, of course, Romeo and Juliet. This will be an evening to revel in Shakespeare’s most-loved speeches and scenes, from his early career to the last plays.
Whether you are new to Shakespeare, revisiting his work or an aficionado, this is a unique opportunity to watch a remarkable ensemble of actors jump from role to role in our new, intimate theatre at Pier 2/3 in Walsh Bay.
To celebrate our first performance in The Neilson Nutshell, we are delighted to announce a special competition! Anyone with tickets for In A Nutshell on Friday 5 August will be entered into a one-off draw to win a 2023 Bell Shakespeare season package. Read full terms and conditions here.
