Gerritt and Jim started The State of Shakespeare in the fall of 2010 as a way of educating young actors about acting Shakespeare. What began as two friends trying to find a way to work together, quickly became something much bigger. Our passion for the works of Shakespeare and more specifically, working on productions of Shakespeare’s plays as both as actors and directors, drove us to expand our simple idea. Neither of us envisioned a website like the one you are visiting.
In the process, we have become sound recorders and editors, interviewers, literary analysts, website developers and future ebook publishers.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the shows!
