about us


Shakespeare Frankfurt is committed to text-based storytelling and utilizes classical and modern theatrical techniques to tell stories that are relevant and accessible to a modern audience. Whether with Shakespeare or other great playwrights from the past, we focus on a generous and flexible environment for artists to grow in.

PJ Escobio

artistic director

“It all starts with a great story and I love stories.  It’s why I chose a career in theatre. But its more than that; its collaboration. A big part of what I do is to bring artists from multiple disciplines together.  That collaboration acts as a conduit for the play and  becomes “cultural research and development”. By doing what we do, I get to tell amazing stories with inspiring people.”

Tracey Grey

production manager of
shakespeare in the garden

“I have discovered a particular passion for Theatre Production. As an actress I was always inspired by the art in staging: design for lighting, costume and sound. As an educator I have a passion for working with the actors to enhance their skills for the stage, and as a person I enjoy the communication with the audience.”
