Double Bill: MOONFLEECE & DISCONTENTED WINTER/HOUSE REMIX

March 26, 2015

|Recurring Event (See all)

MOONFLEECE by Philip Ridley
DISCONTENTED WINTER/HOUSE REMIX by Bryony Lavery

Designed by Katherina Radeva
Directed by Dave Orme

A double bill of Shakespeare-inspired new plays for young actors, with shared set:

In Moonfleece, ‘love stories, kings and queens, and family secrets collide with the politics of hate’ in Philip Ridley’s electric text, described as ‘an East End Hamlet’.

In Discontented Winter/House Remix, Ronan, a latter-day Richard III, kidnaps two princes in a tower [block] to create a ‘better’ world. In the opposite block, sci-fi nerd wants to quit her world altogether. The play ‘cuts, strips and remixes Shakespeare with mangled TV speak and replays of old TV pilots’ to create a dystopian neon-lit future.
