The Romeo & Juliet Session
"Cyclone Rep presents an updated version of the tale of star-crossed lovers with new cast, new look and new music! In this show Shakespeare comes to life and directs a group of modern actors in his great romantic tragedy. However, problems arise as Mr. Shakespeare’s XVIth century attitudes and demeanour clash with those of the modern performers. Once again, Cyclone Rep introduces students to one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays with stunning performances, historical background, discussion of major themes, audience participation and interaction."
The Shakespeare Sessions are entertaining and engaging student-centred performances of Shakespeare texts. Each performance includes a scholarly review clarifying the main themes as well as discussions with the students and the opportunity to participate. Cyclone Rep's Shakespeare Sessions will guide Junior Cert and Leaving Cert learners in their understanding of The Bard's masterpieces.
