Brian Abbot’s company Parrabbola (with Philip Parr as Artistic Director) explore productions of Shakespeare and other theatre which has a social and interactive component, always working within the framework of a specific community – thinking of community in a wide range of settings. A few years ago, they presented The Winters Tale as a warm-up to the International Shakespeare Festival in Ostrava, and took their production to the Gdansk International Shakespeare Festival.

Parrabbola were in charge of hosting The Boat Project in Margate, and Brian greeted the Olympic Torch to Bexley (the only time it crosses the Thames on water) with an Ode (however, modern form of poetry rather than Keats-ian).
