Actors From The London Stage
"The acting...was exceptional, amazing, electric. The choreography was creative; the timing superb; the stage never static, every moment as precise and sacred as a ballet."
– Mia Cabello, the San Antonio Paisano (2015)

Each residency is highlighted by performances of a full-length Shakespeare production. Featuring minimal props, costumes, and set, the clever staging showcases the talents of this unique five-member ensemble while keeping the focus where it belongs—on Shakespeare's words.
In The Classroom
Adaptable by design, AFTLS workshops can serve students from a variety of disciplines. The actors cultivate an appreciation of Shakespeare's works (both on the page and on the stage), and more importantly, enhance students' critical reading and thinking abilities as well as develop their presentation and team-building skills.
"When the Norton Shakespeare cast about for a theatre company with the intelligence and versatility required to make digital recordings that ranged over the whole of Shakespeare canon, we hit upon Actors From The London Stage. We could not have made a better choice: this immensely gifted troupe has the power to bring to vivid life anything to which it turns its attention."
– Stephen Greenblatt, General Editor, The Norton Shakespeare
