The Three Inch Fools

The Three Inch Fools were co-founded by me and my brother in 2015. The Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors with all manner of musical instruments, travelling with set, props, costumes and camping gear, performing highly imaginative and vibrantly musical takes on Shakespeare’s plays. To date, we have performed Shakespeare in castles, stately homes, gardens, churches, market places, village greens, an old fire station, a medieval crypt, a crowded pub and a garlic farm – all the world’s a stage!

Each Fool plays many different instruments – we’ve had everything from guitar and banjo to melodica and singing bowl. So far, we have performed seven of the bard’s plays – The Tempest, As You Like It, Macbeth, Twelfth Night, Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
