Shakespeare Festival – Shakespeareʼs Villains
May 15, 2022 at 20:00 CEST
In English. The feeling that Shakespeare perhaps loved his villains even more than his virtuous characters is explored by Steven Berkoff and Smash’n’Grab Theatre’s one-man play Shakespeareʼs Villains. The evening is part truffle mess, part snarky comedy and an acting par force, in which Philipp Alfons Heitmann whizzes through the pantry of Shakespeare’s characters. A great character study and at the same time a fascinating history lesson. Photo: © Shakespeare Festival / Smash’n’Grab Theatre.
The annual Shakespeare Festival has taken place in Neuss for thirty years. Local expats adore performances in English at the traditional Globe Theatre, a replica of the original along the Thames in London.
As well as the festival’s innovative approach, new artistic director Maja Delinić is developing deeper, multifaceted and cross-disciplinary encounters with William Shakespeare and his works. For four weeks, 14 different companies from various countries will perform in 35 events at the Globe Theater Neuss. New faces making their debut in Neuss as well as well-known and favourite theatre troupes unite drama, music, art, lecture and audience improvisation.
