A rehearsed reading of Shakespeare’s ‘new’ play Margaret of Anjou will be performed for two nights: at the Io Myers theatre at the University of NSW on Friday 8 July and at the Theatre of the University of Notre Dame on Thursday 18 August.
Actors of all kinds are invited to take part. The play has a large cast, lots of terrific juicy roles, and we will be cross-casting women playing men a great deal.
Previously seen in Perth and Ballarat, but not yet performed in Sydney, this play combines elements from the 3 parts of Henry VI and Richard III, to centre the figure of the extraordinary Queen who lives through more than any other character in Shakespeare.
The piece goes for a little over an hour. I estimate 4 rehearsals, but that may be adjusted according to everybody’s feeling about their availability and the needs of the piece. This is not a paying gig, so I will be respectful of people’s time commitments.
Directed by Anna Kamaralli, edited by Liz Schafer, dramaturged by Philippa Kelly, and written by William Shakespeare!
