From a shadowed surface of Shakespeare's prism comes the murderous and bloody Titus (adaptation of Titus & Andronicus). From a bright and tragic plane of the same prism comes the sad romance of Romeo and Juliet.
Unitec's 3rd year acting students have been divided into a company of men, and a company of women. Each company has a director and the task of performing each play in 80 minutes. To the men goes the city of Rome and its murderous cats, and to the women, Verona and its ill fated lovers.
Shakespeare puts the extremes of human behaviour onto the stage for us to examine and reflect upon. With cross gender casting and an edited text the quest is for essence and transcendence.
