Actors From The London Stage (AFTLS) has been touring US campuses for over 36 years. Our principles remain the same as ever: to allow the discovery of the genius of Shakespeare – in class through the active involvement with the students, in performance through the release of the audience’s imagination. The plays are performed with minimal props and no set, through the skills of just five actors without a director. Shakespeare’s language is the true star as, we believe, he intended.
AFTLS is proudly supported by Shakespeare at Notre Dame.
