Meet Tam Tribune. She runs the best pie shop in east London. She runs it with a fierce pride, an iron fist and a sharp tongue. But the street is changing and old times are giving way to the new; a long standing family dispute threatens Tam’s world so she responds with a Shakespearean force. Revenge, as she is often fond of saying, is a dish best served hot.
Exploring themes of family traditions, community and the rise of urban gentrification and staged in a real pie & mash shop on Hoxton Street, Abi’s new play is inspired by the character of Tamora, Queen of the Goths from Shakespeare’s early play Titus Andronicus.
Shakespeare in Shoreditch is a Festival which reconnects the Shoreditch that the young Shakespeare worked in with its vibrant 21st Century counterpart.
For 10 days, plays, films, talks and workshops will populate the streets of Shoreditch to celebrate how Shakespeare can inspire our busy lives today.
