Inspiring Shakespeare … second folio

My original idea of ‘actor walks into a pub’…for the Roath Festival has been revised.

The intention now is to invite writers to submit pieces which use the basic premise underpinning a Shakespeare speech as the inspiration for a modern equivalent. These would be played in tandem with the original speech.

For example, a writer might decide explore the parallel between a suicide bomber considering his/her mission and the king from ‘The Scottish Play’ being confronted by the vision of a knife just before he murders Duncan.

Or a person urging themselves to take action than ‘…peek like John o’ dreams…’

Still working on the detail and the exact shape of the final show. Then there’s funding…

UPDATE: 10/5/2016

This project has changed shape somewhat into a fuller idea for a show. Full of thoughts and ideas…
