BELL Shakespeare returns to Murwillumbah Civic Centre on June 14 to present a brand new show, Shakespeare Is Dead.
Sponsored by Murwillumbah Theatre Company, Shakespeare Is Dead follows a group of teenagers who embark on a journey by asking the ultimate question, “Shakespeare is long dead, so why are we still performing his plays?”
Shakespeare Is Dead is a funny, provocative and fast-paced rollercoaster ride through the world of William Shakespeare. This show promises to challenge negative, preconceived notions about the world’s most famous playwright.
The show features a buffet of famous plays, characters, key scenes, soliloquies and themes from romance to tragedies, from histories to comedies such as Hamlet, The Taming of The Shrew, Midsummer Night’s Dream, Much Ado About Nothing and The Tempest. The production also touches on plot devices, language techniques, iambic pentameter and the world Shakespeare was from.
The renowned Bell Shakespeare has become world famous for its high energy, interactive performances of Shakespeare’s plays. It takes to the road each year to present exciting interpretations of The Bard’s works.
Shakespeare Is Dead will be presented for one show only at the Murwillumbah Civic Centre on Thursday, June 14 at 7pm. The one-hour performance includes a 10-minute Q&A with The Players.
Tickets for this once-only performance are $20 and are available from the booking Ofiice here on the webpage or at the door.
