The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre in Havant has planned a day of plays in celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

On Thursday, May 5, Finding the Will Theatre Company will present Bard Heads, an updated look at some of the playwright’s best-loved plays which take a guess at what may have happened next.

Each 50-minute play promises to be full of laughter, tears and plenty of surprises meaning a prior knowledge of Shakespeare’s work is not required.

The first of which, The Dust Behind the Door, follows on from A Midsummer Night’s Dream and is set for a 1.30pm start.

Then at 7.30pm, the theatre turns its attention to a double bill of Call Me Oz and The Third Witch from the Left, adaptations of Hamlet and Macbeth respectively.

The performances are suitable for those aged 10 and up with ticket prices ranging from £7 for the daytime show to £12.50 for the evening.

Bookings can be made at thespring.co.uk or by calling (023) 9247 2700.
