The King is Dead, Long Live the King
15 Dec 2021 @ 20:00 - 21:15€13,50
The King is Dead, Long Live the King based on three works by Shakespeare; Richard III, Henry the Fifth and King Lear
The themes are timeless. They are about power, powerlessness, happiness, sadness, greed, envy, madness and love. Also about lack of self-esteem, about anger at society and about loneliness. The storylines and themes of Shakespeare are central, the texts are partly used. How to show the power of Shakespeare’s stories without much text has resulted in a unique interpretation of the work of perhaps the greatest playwright in history. About Townspeople Stedelingen is a partnership between care organization Lunet, Carte Blanche and Parktheater Eindhoven. In this collaboration we show that the power of theater transcends limitations. The king is dead, long live the king is the second representation by Townspeople. The player group consists of participants from Lunet and players from Carte Blanche.
