Bruiser in a Box is our annual tour of post-primary schools across Northern Ireland. The Bruiser team will stage a professional production in your assembly hall for as many students as you'd like to attend. This is the perfect opportunity for students studying Bruiser as a chosen practitioner, for live theatre evaluations without the hassle of visiting a venue, and to spark an interest in the performing arts amongst young people.
This year, we're touring schools with the phenomenally popular comedy The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged); a hilarious, fast-paced frolic through the Bard’s extensive playbook. Three maniacal actors clad in tights, weave, duck and dive through Shakespeare’s entire catalogue of Comedies, Histories and Tragedies. From Macbeth to As You Like It, from Romeo and Juliet to The Comedy of Errors, this is one wild evening that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.
This is visceral, energetic, physical theatre at its best, in a heart-rattling rollercoaster including the world record for the shortest-ever performance of Hamlet, clocking in at 43 seconds, as well as the fastest performance of Hamlet backwards, at 42 seconds.
