I, Shakespeare  

I, Shakespeare $20.86 ex GST
$22.95 inc GST
A collection of self contained one-man shows which brilliantly re-imagine four of Shakespeare’s well known plays through the eyes of the bit parts.

I, Malvolio
Re-imagines Twelfth Night from the point of view of Shakespeare’s pent-up ‘notoriously wronged’ steward. A story of lost dignity, prudery, practical, jokes and bullying that draws us deep into the madness of Shakespeare’s classic comedy.

I, Banquo
A blood-shot, story-telling journey into the heart of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, told through the eyes of his murdered best friend. Classic theatre and modern story-telling combined, accompanied by a heavy-metal-guitar-playing 13 year old Fleance, a severed head and 32 litres of blood.

I, Caliban
Events on Prospero’s island as viewed by Caliban, a puppy-headed monster alone on the island at the end of The Tempest, alone with his memories, his magic tricks and one last bottle of wine. I, Caliban is a sweet and sorry tale about injustice, inebriation and missing your mum.

I, Peaseblossom
The story of A Midsummer Night’s Dream as re-lived through the fevered nightmares of Shakespeare’s most neglected fairy. Funny, heart-breaking and ever-so-slightly crazed, I, Peaseblossom is a gloriously anarchic dream of a ‘dream’, perfect for children and adults alike.

'If only the plays were taught like this in schools, nobody would ever say Shakespeare was boring.'    The Guardian
