Shakespeare in your local supermarket - another way to celebrate the Bard’s birthday this month. Brighten up your shopping trip at Sainsbury’s, London Road, by watching Teatro Vivo present its theatrical performance inspired by Shakespeare’s Sonnet No 91.

Some glory in their birth, some in their skill
Some in their wealth, some in their bodies' force...

According to the press release, there’ll be six performers who will create “contemporary characters that have intertwining stories and these will be performed all around the supermarket. Performed whilst the supermarket is open, these stories will show the contemporary relevance of Shakespeare’s work in an accessible and everyday environment.

Shoppers can follow the individual characters and hear how their stories unravel whilst filling up their trolley and choosing their dinner.”

Supermarket Shakespeare is FREE to attend. There is no need for audiences to book; they can just turn up.


Tuesday 28th April - Friday 1st May 6.30pm
Saturday 2nd May 12pm & 6pm
Sunday 3rd May 12pm & 3pm

Performance Length: 1 hour.
