The Merchant of Darkness – The story of BP & the Reclaim Shakespeare Company


A play of three acts telling the story of BP, ‘a merchant of most monstrous greed’, the RSC ‘a goodly company of players’ and the rebel performers who seek to remove the mask from BP’s face.

Inspired by the Bard and wise to BP’s ‘deep and dark desires’ the rebel players, known as ‘The Reclaim Shakespeare Company’, have performed many times at RSC productions. Using the brief interlude before the start of a play they have jumped upon the stage to make clear their concerns about the oil giant’s sponsorship of the World Shakespeare Festival.
