about us

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.”

what our

audiences say

“Fantastic show! This was definitely the best production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream that I have seen. It was all so beautifully entertaining… I can’t remember having a better time at a Shakespeare play.“​
“Ihre Produktion von “A Midsummer Nights Dream”, aufgeführt im Botanischen Garten Frankfurt von der Theater-Company Shakespeare Frankfurt, war einfach großartig!!! Herzlich bitte ich Sie um Zusendung eines Autogrammes (gerne auf einem Foto oder irgendeiner Karte!) per Briefpost.“
“I absolutely loved the Loft’s rendition of Twelfth Night, one of my favourite Shakespeare plays. I was really impressed with the quality of the acting, with the creativity of the set, and with the more modernized rendition (set in the 20s). I laughed a lot and highly recommend it!”
"Shakespeare in the Garden ist der absolute Oberhammer. Ich habe noch nie in meinem Leben so etwas tolles und einzigartiges erlebt. 🙂 Unglaublich!!!!!! So ein Aufwand auch. Und die Kostüme, die Requisiten, die Zeltlager, die Einarbeitung des Botanischen Garten selbst. Unglaublich!!!! Die Schauspieler haben alles gegeben z.B. Eintauchen in den brackigen Tümpel mit dem ganzen Kopf!"
“An eloquent redition of a Shakespeare’s classic – The Tempest.
“Their rendition of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night was fresh, creative and engaging… In other words, go see it, don’t fear the language, even if you’re not a native English speaker: trust me, it’s great fun!”
