Shakespeare's Sonnets are given a dramatic makeover by Israel's Thespis Theatre Troupe at Whitefield Garrick July 10–11, as part of Greater Manchester Fringe.

The sonnets cover procreation and conception, time and mortality, jealousy and love, beauty and erotica.

Here they are transformed into dramatic pieces.

Thespis Theatre Troupe was founded in 2015 by Meir Ben Simon; troupe members are professional actors and actresses who have graduated from different acting schools in Israel and represent varied methods of theatre education.
