Shakespeare Demystified–Romeo & Juliet
Event: Shakespeare Demystified- Romeo & Juliet
Artist: KL Shakespeare Players
Date: 22 & 23 September 2018
Venue: Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC)
Keeping to the Shakespeare Demystified format–performance of key scenes using Shakespeare’s text, weaved together by narration in contemporary English–the shows make Shakespeare accessible, exciting and relevant, without dumbing down, to audience of different levels.
“Shakespeare Demystified: Romeo & Juliet” is about two young star-crossed lovers and their tragic end. Trapped by the feud between their families–the Montagues and the Capulets–their lives seem to tumble into an inevitable and ill-fated tragedy. The apparent “good” coming out of that “misadventured” is that they “bury their parents’ strife”.
