The 21st Century
Founded in 2004 and named after Shakespeare’s original troupe of travelling players, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men has quickly established itself as the UK’s premier open-air touring theatre company.
Touring to over 80 venues throughout the UK and internationally over the summer months, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men brings its unique blend of all male Shakespearean entertainment to only the most beautiful and historic open air venues, where the audiences can sit under the stars, sip a glass of wine and enjoy a picnic while being enthralled in true Elizabethan fashion.
The actor-musicians of the company follow the same principles that Shakespeare himself championed: clear, bold and dynamic storytelling in the open air, seasoned with a healthy dose of music, songs and comedy combine to make a Lord Chamberlain’s Men production the perfect way to spend a summer’s evening.
The Lord Chamberlain’s Men has gone from strength to strength, and continues to enhance its reputation as the UK’s most popular outdoor touring Shakespeare company.
