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.
