In its 80th anniversary year, the Theatre Guild is delighted to present the second student production of a bold one-act adaptation as they re-imagine Shakespeare's classic.
Director and writer, James Watson said "I wanted to reinterpret the line 'When we three meet again' and my mantra was 'versus Shakespeare'. What could I do that was different yet recognisable enough to maintain this tale of tragedy? Minimalist and fragmented, this production retaliates against traditional productions of Shakespeare."
Two of Adelaide's finest young actors, Abaigh Curry and Tom Tassone are left alone in a modern bedroom, with nothing but themselves as they provide laughter, love and loneliness as they confront their painful past and the futility of whatever future they may have as they struggle with loss as their lives plummet out of control. Together their grieving makes way for tragedy as they struggle to maintain control onto a normal life.
Written and Directed by James Watson, who is at present studying for a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Creative Writing) at Flinders University. James has been writing plays and involved in theatre since high school where in his senior year was Drama Captain. In 2016, he won the State Theatre Company of South Australia Young Playwrights' Award. He also wrote the double bill Domestic Autumn and Angry Love for the Theatre Guild. In the following year he wrote and directed Empty Vanity for the Fringe.
*PLEASE NOTE* There will be major reconstruction work in The Cloisters commencing Monday 15 October until February 2019 and The Cloisters car park will be closed with the Cloisters area fenced off.
Pedestrian access to the theatre will be via On Dit Lane, (the laneway between the northern side of the theatre and the Lady Symon Building). The most direct route will be to enter from Gate 10 off Victoria Drive, walk straight ahead so the Lady Symon Building is on your left then turn left into On Dit Lane.
Why? The Theatre Guild is delighted to present a second student production in their 80th anniversary year, featuring another two of Adelaide’s fine young actors supported by an enthusiastic & committed team of students backstage & front of house.
