This year’s winter festival features over 50 productions and more than 100 hours of entertainment, including Sweet Tea Shakespeare productions of Knight’s Tale: Shakespeare and Fletcher’s The Two Noble Kinsmen, Much Ado About Nothing, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Winter’s Tale, Romeo & Juliet, Green Tea Youth Company productions of The Sea Voyage and Romeo & Juliet, several “bootleg” concerts by our house band, The Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers, our Enneagram & Shakespeare podcast and stream series, and a number of Zoom performances of plays from Shakespeare’s contemporaries and the Restoration period.

Sweet Tea Shakespeare began in 2012 as a production company dedicated to finding the best way for Shakespeare and other classic work to reach a broad audience. While Shakespeare is perhaps the most performed playwright of all time, a large number of works cannot be accessed by audiences who don’t want to travel during the evening, folks with limited transportation, hard of hearing patrons, and others.

Sweet TeaV seeks to change this by taking Shakespeare online and making it accessible and affordable for anyone with an internet connection. Sweet TeaV Stream Fest makes our productions available, with transcripts, throughout the season. In addition to Shakespeare, we also offer our live music concerts, preshows, and an array of early modern and Restoration performances, many of which are rarely performed.
