From 2010-2014, Michael Pinchbeck created three devised performances inspired by the work of William Shakespeare. The Beginning, an interpretation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Middle, a reconstruction of Hamlet, and The End triggered by a stage direction from The Winter’s Tale, are shown together as The Trilogy. Fusing an experimental approach to Shakespeare’s text with the company’s personal stories about their first or last times onstage, The Trilogy asks the audience to enter a world where a performance can be a rehearsal, text can be both script and set and they are always aware of where the fire exits are.
