Open Air Theatre Festival in Cardiff: Shakespeare, 21-30, JulyJuly 18, 2016
Everyman Theatre is back in Cardiff for the Open Air Festival.
Their Shakespeare productions include:
Richard II, 24th, July, 2016
Everyman Youth Theatre are delighted to return to the Open Air Theatre Festival this summer to perform Shakespeare’s historical play, Richard II. Running time is approximately 90 minutes including an interval.
Romeo and Juliet, 21-30th, July, 2016
Everyman Theatre are delighted to welcome directors Mark Modzelewski and Jack Paterson to our Open Air Theatre Festival and the depiction of Shakespeare’s classic tale of “star-cross’d lovers”, forbidden love and blind passion is a tale of firsts. Swept away in their first love, teenagers Romeo and Juliet irresistibly drawn to each other, fall in love and marry in secret as their families’ long standing feud comes to a head. When you are passionately in love, nothing else matters – not even life itself. Defying the hatred and violence surrounding them, they dare to believe they can, and must, be together.
In modern Verona, violence erupts between the Montagues and Capulets with tragic consequences. With the death of their children, the citizens come together and through song, movements and story examine how they came to such tragedy.
