This production covers intense issues such as sexual coercion/harassment. It also contains sexual innuendo, misogyny, and references to consumption of alcohol.
In an ongoing collaboration with Play On! Shakespeare and with an exciting an insightful modern verse translation by Aditi Brennan Kapil, this Shakespearean play is being presented in Shanklin Theatre for the first time ever. The 400-year-old tale could be “ripped from the headlines” of today’s world, as it examines themes central to human nature and our paradoxical relationship to justice and mercy. With all its high-spirited bawdiness, this tragicomedy reveals what can happen when sex, religion, and politics collide.
