Smooth Faced Gentlemen are the UK's only all-female Shakespeare company. Formed in 2012, this female ensemble perform fast-paced, dynamic productions of Shakespeare's much-loved classics. Thier approach, which marries tradition with innovation, seeks to dismantle the audience's preconceptions of the Bard's work. Through the prism of an all-female cast Smooth Faced Gentlemen examine the mastery with which Shakespeare pictures humanity - a humanity which an actor can explore and share whether male or female.

This year Smooth Faced Gentlemen set sail on thier maiden voyage - a production of Romeo & Juliet - helmed by the award-winning Three's Company. Shakespeare's greatest love story was faithfully and provocatively retold by the exceptional all-female cast at the Buxton Festival Fringe, July 2012. This bold production of the classic tale of love and rage met with critical and popular acclaim and went on to win the festival's Best Production award.


Building on this success, they now feel it is time for the company's immediate and timely work to reach a wider audience. They are planning to mount their first season in London, which will include a full run for the award-winning Romeo & Juliet. If you would like to help them to start this process, they are hosting an industry launch night at a top London theatre. They say that the night will be an opportunity for them to promote the Troupe to potential, sponsors and associates. The event will take the form of a performance of Romeo & Juliet followed by a drinks reception, giving interested parties a chance to find out more about their exciting young company.
