Where and when: THE VAULTS, Leake Street, SE1 7NN 6th April – 8th May 2022 Weds – Sunday inclusive Doors open 7PM for 7:30PM start
What it’s all about… This brand new adaptation is returning to London hot off the heels of a successful UK outdoor-tour and will be setting up camp at The Vaults from 6th April- 8th May 2022.
Celebrating and championing women, this company rocks a women-led production team, women-led creative team, and a woman in the starring role of Richard. Join us as we enter a kingdom in which a woman is presenting as a man to hold on to power, and be prepared to reconsider everything you thought you knew about the so-called ‘effeminate’ King.
Quandary Collective take Shakespeare’s words and fuse them with muscular movement, bloody violence and electronic beats, to bring you a gut-wrenching rendition of Shakespeare’s classic that’s somewhere between Mad Max: Fury Road, an episode of Game of Thrones and what it might have been like to stand in the pit at The Globe in 1595. This young company’s fearless adaptation looks at what it means to lead a country, the insidious effects of toxic masculinity, and why gender continually seems to matter in positions of power.
You’ll like it if… you love pumping electronic beats, epic imagery and punchy acting.
You should see it because… it speaks beautifully about the current politics and global knife edge we are currently on. Plus it will be a really good night out!
Anything else we should know…: It’s actually really funny.
