SD: Romeo & Juliet
presented by KL SHAKESPEARE PLAYERS
Keeping to the SD format--performance of key scenes using Shakespeare's text, weaved together by narration in contemporary English--the shows make Shakespeare accessible, exciting and relevant, without dumbing down, to audience of different levels.
"SD: Romeo & Juliet" is about two young star-crossed lovers and their tragic end. Trapped by the feud between their families--the Montagues and the Capulets--their lives seem to tumble into an inevitable and ill-fated tragedy. The apparent “good” coming out of that “misadventured” is that they “bury their parents’ strife”.
SD shows are very popular among teachers, professors and students from secondary schools, colleges and universities, as these productions unveil the mystique of Shakespeare. Even working adults and parents have uttered, “SD shows have rekindled our interest in Shakespeare!”
In 2017, with its Macbeth KLSP performed a total of 40 shows in 7 states, 15 venues to over 6,000 pairs of eyes. While this year with Romeo & Juliet the company has traveled to Penang, Johor Bahru, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu, with close to 30 shows by September.
SD's work is further validated by international Shakespeare scholars and theatre practitioners, when it performed at the 3rd Biennial Conference of Asian Shakespeare Association in Manila in May 2018.
