Hillbark Players present outdoors a magical showcase for 'Shakespeare in War and Peace'
2018 is inevitably likely to be a year of commemoration when the ending of the Great War is recalled and the fallen are honoured. In this interim year between full productions, Hillbark Players offers its own act of remembrance by offering excerpts from some of the Bards best known plays highlighting the effects and consequences of both War and Peace. With an ensemble cast drawn from new and experienced actors, this production will be an entertaining yet poignant look at how Shakespeare treated both conflict and reconciliation, using edited highlights from Romeo &; Juliet, Richard III, Henry IV Pt 1, Henry V, Coriolanus and Much Ado About Nothing.
The production dates are from Thursday 19th to Saturday 21st July and a special family-friendly matinee on Sunday 22nd July. With extra narration for young people, this will be an ideal introduction to the bard for children.
