Last summer, The Leacock Home provided a picturesque backdrop for Mariposa Arts Theatre's spirited production of Twelfth Night. Now the players are back to take on a different approach to The Bard in the Yard...
Why see just one Shakespeare play when you can see them all in 97 minutes? Three players take on the challenge of romping through tragedies, romances, comedies and histories in the guise of Juliet one minute, Othello the next, then on to a little sword play. You don't have to be a Shakespeare aficionado to appreciate the flagrant fun and spontaneous action of the parody of the world's most well-known playwright. Think 'Coles Notes' version of a whole lot of dramatic works. Who knows what will happen next??
