KDC has had many fine hours in the last few years, but undoubtedly one of its finest was when we performed War of the Waleses on the Dell Stage at Stratford-upon-Avon as part of the RSC Open Stages festival last year. Its co-writer and director Sarah Heenan is taking it to the Camden and Edinburgh Fringes.
Between them over the last 4 years, the cast and writers have been involved in The Priory, Dracula, Midsummer Night’s Dream, A Clockwork Orange, Ubu Rex, Ups and Downs, The Provok’d Wife, Summers Gone, The Long Run, She Ventures and He Wins and Anna Karenina. It doesn’t get any moreKDC than that!War of the Waleses is a stylish and highly acclaimed reimagining of the split of Charles & Diana, the fall of the Conservatives and the rise of New Labour performed as a witty Shakespearean history full of 90s Brit Pop nostalgia.
Do come along and support us and see why we are so proud of our new writing.

It’d be great to hear from any casts that are reuniting to head up there, or having feedback from a gang of you making a pilgrimage, that we might be able to put up on the website to show ourselves off!

Here we are on the second leg of our Shakespeare triathlon. Congratulations to all involved in Measure for Measure – a fantastic crew and brilliant performances all round. This week we bring you The Tamer Tamed – follow-up to Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew and far better than most sequels.
The second play of our Spring Season, The Tamer Tamed, opens tomorrow, 3 April, at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre in Kentish Town. It runs from Tuesday to Saturday and performances begin at 7.30pm.
The Tamer Tamed is the sequel to Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew – where the women get their revenge on the newly remarried Petruchio.
Written by John Fletcher, the Bard’s collaborator on Henry VIII, Two Noble Kinsman and (the lost) Cardenio, the play combines moments of high and low comedy with some powerful speeches in this timeless tale about the battle of the sexes and who really comes out on top.
