SoHo Shakespeare Company is

telling our stories from unexpected perspectives

SoHo Shakes is a collective of crafty theatre makers challenging the mainstream narrative by making space for the overlooked to rise up, be heard, and take center stage.


Our mission is to develop radical reinterpretations of classic texts and bold new works by rabble-rousing storytellers. Through live productions, community programs, education, and outreach, we are dedicated to giving voice to the voiceless.


History is told by those who hold the microphone, but it’s up to us to find the truth.  Like the fox, forever digging and diving, theatre must always look to uncover hidden truths by listening to the people, in all our glorious diversity.
