What's Next - after 'Hogfather'?
Dogg’s Hamlet, Cahoot’s Macbeth
Words are a game – they only work when you know the rules…
In a very unusual school, final preparations are underway for a special version of one of Shakespeare’s finest plays. But it isn’t just the Bard that the pupils are having trouble understanding…
Later, a group of actors under surveillance by the secret police are putting on Macbeth in a living room. A smug inspector gatecrashes the performance; the show must go on, but how?
How are the two linked? And how on Earth do you stage Hamlet in 13 minutes?
This fast-paced, physical comedy about nonsense, language, and power is Stoppard at his most playful.
If you'd like to be involved in the show, the casting read through will be on Monday 19 November, 19:30 at the Blackbird Leys Community Centre.
