2014 Unitec Shakespeare Season

Coming this month to the Unitec Theatre...

2014 UNITEC SHAKESPEARE SEASON


Merchant of Venice directed by Elena Stejko
Twelfth Night by Ben Crowder

Featuring Unitec's third year actors

What has become an anticipated event on the Auckland theatre calendar - the 2014 Unitec Shakespeare season - is now upon us!

Two directors, with a company of 10 third year actors each, create an 80 minute performance from one of the great works of our 'ancestor in drama' William Shakespeare.

This year the dark, vengeful The Merchant of Venice is being directed by Elena Stejko. Set in the shadows and secretive waterways of the city the tensions of European tribal and religious prejudice becomes a treatise on the divine quality of mercy.

In alarming contrast Ben Crowder directs an opulent and comedic Twelfth Night. Set in a millionaire's playground this juggle of gender jumping celebrates the sufferance of romantic love, those who rejoice in its presence and those who are stung by its absence.

This season of back-to-back Shakespeare sees Unitec acting programme at its best; talented and skilled performers, top industry directors and the Bard himself.

Don't miss out!
