Shakespeare Demystified: Romeo & Juliet

For the eighth year running, theatre-in-education KL Shakespeare Players (KLSP) offers its engaging and illuminating performances of the Bard’s plays. This year, the company will stage Shakespeare Demystified: Romeo & Juliet (SD:R&J) in Johor Bahru on 11th and 12th May 2018, at Jade Restaurant, Greenland Danga Bay.

Everyone knows of Romeo & Juliet as their names tease thoughts of young star-crossed lovers and their tragic end. Trapped by the feud between their families – the Montagues and the Capulets – their lives seem to tumble into an inevitable and ill-fated tragedy. The apparent “good” coming out of that “misadventure” is that they “bury their parents’ strife”.

KLSP’s unique 100-minute abridgment of this Shakespeare’s play will peel back the layers, and unveil some issues that the tale may be a metaphor of. KLSP will keep its characteristic format of performing the key scenes in Shakespeare’s words and piecing the parts together into a coherent whole with a narrative glue in contemporary English (and with a sprinkling of our local mother tongues). It is during this narration that certain now-exotic words are explained, overlooked issues underscored, questioned raised, etc.

Always innovating, KLSP in its 2017 production of Shakespeare Demystified: Macbeth made music central in its performance. This time, the company will incorporate in SD:R&J not just music but also a more physical performance, driven by the practices and philosophy of physical theatre.

Underscoring KLSP’s educational mission - each performance will conclude with a question-and-answer session, which allows audience members to inquire, make comments as they engage with the play and the actors. This Q&A is also a favourite part for students attending our performances.

To create this production, KLSP has gathered a youthful cast: Hana Nadira, Ali Alasri, Safia Hanifa, Ivan Chan and Phraveen Arikiah. Lim Soon Heng will play the patriarchal roles. The production is directed by Lim Kien Lee.
