In our third commission, created by Stratford-upon-Avon based animators The Brothers McLeod to celebrate the value of the arts today, ‘Billy’ Shakespeare goes back to the future to see how his plays have been reimagined in Stratford. The film below uses Shakespeare’s plays to explore how art and culture can having a lasting impact, and inspire future generations.

Many of the plays referenced are showcased in the RSC’s new family friendly permanent exhibition The Play’s The Thing.
