The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 24.0163 Wednesday, 10 April 2013
Date: April 9, 2013 4:10:42 AM EDT
Subject: Global Shakespeares
I was delighted to hear the announcement from Global Shakespeares that we will shortly be able to encounter
A Brazilian street theatre version of Romeo and Juliet - on stilts
A Chinese opera King Lear in which one actor plays Lear and his daughters
A Japanese Hamlet who sits motionless on stage whilst mechanical dolls enact his thoughts.
This is obviously a joke. The information was dated April 1st and the tears still run unchecked from my eyes.
