So much of what is happening in politics and society right now parallels what happens within Shakespeare’s plays – and we’re not just talking Trump. With this in mind, the ‘new takes’ on the works of the Bard will be performed by Hawke’s Bay students in Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand’s University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festivals (SGCNZ UOSWSF). In their 5- and 15- minute scenes, they re-envisage the aggressors, the megalomaniacs, the despots, the abusers, the meek and many more identifiable personalities. School groups and home-schooled students from throughout the region will perform in the SGCNZ UOSWSF at Napier Girls' High School on Monday 8 April from 6pm. Tickets are available at the door. Two of the most outstanding performances will have an encore at the Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington over Queen’s Birthday weekend.
