Professional Shakespeare Productions in the British Isles January–December 2003


Most of the productions listed are by professional companies, but some amateur productions are included. The information is taken from Touchstone ( ), a Shakespeare website maintained by the Shakespeare Institute Library. Touchstone includes a monthly list of current and forthcoming UK Shakespeare productions from listings information. The Traffic of the Stage database, also available on Touchstone, archives UK Shakespeare production information since January 1993, correlating information from listings with reviews held in the Shakespeare Institute Library. The websites provided for theatre companies were accurate at the time of going to press.
