Accessing Shakespeare Season - Greenwich Playhouse

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

GREENWICH Playhouse continues its Accessing Shakespeare season (a season of re-workings or sequels of Shakespeare’s work) with A Midsummer Night’s Dream – from April 11 to May 7, 2006.

One of Shakespeare’s most popular plays, A Midsummer Night’s Dream will mark the London debut of The Clockhouse Theatre Company.

Performed by four multi-role-playing actors, in a bold and innovative style, the new production is fast-paced and unlike anything you may have seen before.

Tickets: £11 (£8 concessions)

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is followed – from May 9 to June 4, 2006 – by Tempest Fugit: Prospero’s Will….the Return to the Island.

In Frank Bramwell’s sequel to The Tempest, Prospero starts the play stranded on the Island, held back by its mysterious powers….

Bramwell’s text stays true to Shakespeare’s themes and characters but will give students the opportunity to better understand its deep feelings of love, power, revenge and forgiveness.

The play’s haunting music has been specially commissioned from New York based Napua Davoy, the internationally renowned jazz and opera singer/composer.

Tickets: £11 (£8 concessions)

The Tempest according to Zecora Ura was the first in the Accessing Shakespeare trilogy.
