No Holds Bard

posted 22 May 2013, 02:52 by Sandra Kirby
Not long home from theatre where KPMG shouted us seats for No Holds Bard, a NZ play based on Shakespeare before the actor heads off to Edinbugh Festival with it.
V clever - premise is Hamlet comes home from play and contemplates suicide.  Visited by Macbeth and Othello.  One actor on stage the whole time playing all characters - when he is in a fight scene it was quite something - actor could throw and receive a punch, kick or eye gouge.

Not sure we would say we liked it - but it was different.  It is quite refreshing to go out on a school night . .
