Sweden’s most experienced Shakespearean actors
Shakespeare på Gräsgården is a professional theatre group in Vadstena, a small town situated on the shore of Lake Vättern in southern Sweden. We have produced William Shakespeare’s plays every summer, since 1996, on our outdoor stage. Our main stage is the large grass courtyard near the Abbey Church, which is how we got our name – Shakespeare in the Grass Courtyard (Shakespeare på Gräsgården).
Our vision is to create a forum in which Shakespeare’s dramas unite different groups of people, regardless of age, gender, sexual preference and ethnic background, and help us to interpret the world, with a regional starting point.
Our plays are produced by a professional team with both professional and amateur actors. Shakespeare på Gräsgården also arranges theatre courses in cooperation with Linköping University and the Vadstena Folk High School.
