Locked down by Plague in London, Shakespeare writes King Lear… Over 400 years later, actors living through COVID-19 hear of this feat, and decide to perform a compilation of Shakespeare’s plague-related scenes. There’s one catch: Master Shakespeare didn’t write about the plague – or so it seems.
This playful show poignantly samples some of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays, songs, and sonnets. The hunt begins! Let’s find traces of the plague in the Bard’s work, reflecting on our own lives along the way.
Touring July 14 – August 6, 2022
