“This is energetic, undemanding entertainment which is perfect.” - Jersey (Romeo and Juliet)
We take epic classic texts and adapt them into heart-warming, humourous, vibrant and feel-good theatre performances for all the family. The works of Shakespeare, Dickens, The Brontes, Robert Louis Stephenson, Victor Hugo and many more have all been "Oddsocked" to great effect since 1989.
The entertainment begins as soon as you take your seat (or blanket). Come rain or shine, the Oddsocks players involve you in the action from the safety of your chair (or blanket). We tour twice each year; to open-air castles, stately homes and parks in the summer and to theatres and arts centres in the Winter. Our style is irreverent but respectful to the text, slapstick but skillful, funny but full of truth, clever but accessible. We are what you have been looking for!
