What We May Be: The Many Faces of Shakespeare's Women

ID: 1997
Working with William Shakespeare’s original texts, Awkward Tree explores some of the most celebrated and often controversial female characters written in theatre history. Shakespeare’s women were written and presented in such a way that reflected the patriarchal society in which they lived. Many who have analysed Shakespeare’s work suggest that his views and understanding of women changed and developed throughout his career. However, we can only speculate his intentions behind creating these female roles, which have been interpreted and portrayed in a variety of ways over the years. Victims of circumstance, or pilots of their own fate? These ladies remain as influential and significant as ever in today’s society. Pending a 2017 tour, we invite you to attend the preview of this exciting and provocative new piece, and take part in a post-show discussion with the company. Suitable for age 11+
