Summary

Most of the productions listed are by professional companies, but a number of productions with mixed amateur and professional casts have been included. Information is mainly taken from newspaper reviews held in the Birmingham Shakespeare Library. Notable this year has been the increasing number of professional or semi-professional companies performing at open-air sites such as National Trust houses and Oxford and Cambridge college gardens, exploiting the link between Shakespeare and the tourist industry. There is also an increasing number of small touring companies, probably a response to the effect of the recession on professional theatre: an interesting twentieth-century version of the strolling players tradition.
