About Upstart Crow

With an original script and plenty of hilarious moments in store, get ready for a Shakespeare experience you’ll never forget.

WHO’S IN IT?: UPSTART CROW CAST

David Mitchell will make his West End debut as William Shakespeare in Upstart Crow. Best known as one half of comedy duo Mitchell and Webb, he has appeared in the Channel 4 series Peep Show and Would I Lie To You? on the BBC.

Gemma Whelan will reprise her television appearance as Kate. Best known for playing Yara Greyjoy in Game of Thrones, her stage credits include the Pinter at the Pinter season opposite Danny Dyer and Martin Freeman.

Further casting is to be announced.

What's the story?

Set in 1605, audiences meet William Shakespeare after he’s written Measure for Measure and All’s Well That Ends Well. But, both plays didn’t go down very well with the British public. Looking for inspiration for a new play, will the Bard be able to create a masterpiece and avoid being cast aside by King and country?

With plenty of dramatic twists and turns, can Shakespeare retain his prestige as one of the greatest writers that’s ever lived?
