PLEASE NOTE:  The LONDON SHAKESPEARE WORKOUT - LSW has a NEW WEBSITE.  Please go directly to  Thank you.



Welcome to the dream that is LSW, the London Shakespeare Workout.  Through the proven strength of our community outreach programme, the London Shakespeare Workout (LSW) Prison Project, a fully registered national charity with the Charity Commission of England and Wales (No. 1084717), we aim to be of service both to the theatrical profession and to the broader community at large. By virtue of an ever burgeoning series of varied incentives, actors, film-makers alongside offenders and ex-offenders of all ages, genders, races, creeds, nationalities and orientations are given opportunities to further explore and develop skills of self-expression and jointly enhance confidence through the glorious balm which is Shakespeare's language, as well as that of other major dramatic voices and thinkers and film-makers who have been inspired by the Bard throughout time. Please follow the links below to find out more.
