Shakespeare, As We Like It

Become a producer of an unprecedented comedy about Shakespeare !!!

 

"La Petite Vadrouille" Theatre company needs your support for the production of "Shakespeare, As We Like It" in London in Februrary 2017

 

After the broadcast of the show in France in 2015, this time the company created an English cast and gathered 3 actors (who met at Shakespeare's Globe in October 2015) all addicted to Shakespeare, to perform this show.

The pitch : An American actor, a French one and an Italian have to perform in honour of The Bard under the direction of a demanding and eccentric British director who wants them to play Shakespeare according to 16th century practice. This comedy, which could also have been entitled “An Opening Night's Dream”, uses Shakespeare's favourite literary device of a play within a play.  The last part of the rehearsal is far from reassuring:  tension mounts as the actors attempt to dance an impossible jig in traditional costume, struggle to stage the heroine's implausible death, fret over the ridiculous superstitions surrounding “MacBeth” and argue about whether Shakespeare is the true author of his plays.  Even the poet's ghost meddles in the play and sticks his oar in on the play's opening night. Zany and quirky, this comedy is a declaration of love to Shakespeare …. with a plastic duck !
