SHAKESPEARE DEMYSTIFIED: ROMEO & JULIET (THEATRE) - KK ARTS FEST 2018


13 August 2018 - For the eighth year running, theatre-in-education KL Shakespeare Players (KLSP) offers to secondary-and-university students its engaging and illuminating performances of the Bard’s plays. This year, the company will stage Shakespeare Demystified: Romeo & Juliet.

Everyone knows of Romeo & Juliet as their names tease thoughts of 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”.

KLSP’s unique 100-minute abridgment of this Shakespeare’s play will peel back the layers, and unveil some issues that the tale may be a metaphor of. KLSP will keep its characteristic format of performing the key scenes in Shakespeare’s words and piecing the parts together into a coherent whole with a narrative glue in contemporary English (and with a sprinkling of our local mother tongues). It is during this narration that certain now-exotic words are explained, overlooked issues underscored, questioned raised, etc.
