Shakespeare again this summer.



We are happy to announce that we will make an appearance in Gotland at Romateatern this summer.
SEST will participate in their Shakespeare symposium, performing a 40 minute piece entitled ‘Shakespeare’s Women’.

We are very excited to work with the talented Helena Lewin once again and thrilled for the opportunity to take SEST across the water to new summer pastures!

The symposium will take place from the 26th until the 28th of July and we will perform our piece on the last day.

So for those of you in Gotland, please join us there!
