who are the Masters of shx?
Ed Loboda, Lizzie Hardy, Rob Leinheiser, Rosanna Thornwood, and Susannah Morgan Eig met on the MA Shakespeare & Creativity course at The Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-Upon-Avon, UK. After a year of intensive Shakespeare coursework led by exceptional professors from the University of Birmingham and talented theatre practitioners at the Royal Shakespeare Company, the five graduate students culminated their year by creating an original devised play inspired by Shakespeare's more marginalized characters. And thus, THE TRAGICAL COMICAL FOOL'S GAME was born. As the show makes its way across the pond, we warmly welcome our newest members and enthusiastically add them to the ranks of The Masters of SHX.
