A woman singing

Unversed in the Painted Room 2pm

Written and performed by Beckis Cooper and directed by Rachel Fowler.

In Unversed…  An eager young actor in the city of London has got her hands on a discarded copy of Shakespeare’s first folio. Newly printed and the hottest publication in town, all the plays exist together for the very first time. There's only one problem: the parts are all too out of reach for women to play on the public stage. Come along and be part of the rehearsal as Antonia gives herself permission to speak the verse and explore the profession of being a woman - both onstage and off.

Unversed... was commissioned and created for the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's First Folio for Keats House in Hampstead where it premiered to great reviews and has since toured to Doctor Johnson's House in Fleet Street, John Clare Cottage and is now coming to Oxford Preservation Trust's Painted Room in April 2024!

Tickets £15
