Created, adapted and directed by Australian actor, Sally McLean and produced by Incognita Enterprises, Shakespeare Republic is an internationally award-winning, female-led and culturally diverse anthology short form TV series currently in its second season that celebrates not just the world’s greatest playwright, but also his insightful understanding of the big issues of his time.
