Catch two Shakespeare plays reimagined for ShoreditchAfter the sell-out success of 2014, The Shakespeare in Shoreditch Festival returns with an exciting programme of plays and performance to celebrate the 400 year anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. Inspired by Shakespeare’s universal stories come four new plays written and developed in Shoreditch:
Ticket Option One
- Grey Man by Lulu Raczka
Maya knows a lot of good scary stories. Loads. Too many really. She hates them. But why then, is she telling them to us? Two sisters grow up on either side of a bedroom wall, one tells the stories, and the other hears them. Directed by Robyn Winfield-Smith.
- The H-Word by David Watson
On the trendiest side of London's most happening street - The H-Word. A place for everyone. A place where people can be themselves. A cafe for the future, but haunted by the past, in a play about spirits, belonging and gentrification. Directed by Emma Baggott.
Ticket Option Two
- Pelican Daughters by Amy Rosenthal
A reversal of King Lear set in the shifting landscape of East London, Pelican Daughters is about sibling rivalry, filial bonds and the inescapability of our roots. Directed by Kay Michael
- This is Art by Charlene James
Set at the Desdemona Gallery in an ever-changing Hoxton, This is Art explores jealously, betrayal and how we make a mark to express who we really are. Directed by Hannah Banister.
There are two ticket types. Ticket Option One admits you into both Grey Man by Lulu Raczka and The H-Word by David Watson. Ticket Option Two admits you into both Pelican Daughters by Amy Rosenthal and This is Art by Charlene James. Buy tickets for two performances on different days to see the full collection of plays.
