For the eighth year running, theatre-in-education KL Shakespeare Players (KLSP) offers to secondary-and-university students its engaging and illuminating performances of the Bard’s plays. From April 24 – 29 April at klpac and from May 3 – 6 at penangpac, the company will stage Shakespeare Demystified: Romeo & Juliet (SD:R&J).

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 year, 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 students 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.

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 “misadventured” is that they “bury their parents’ strife”.
