This committed and talented group of Upper School actors have grappled with one of Shakespeare’s most challenging tragedies culminating in an intense and gripping performance. Reimagined in a rather dystopian autocracy, the action took place within the confines of a modern army camp on the island of Cyprus. There were some wonderfully rich character interpretations from every member of the cast, all of whom contributed to the heart-pounding action on stage. The final act – one of Shakespeare’s most harrowing – kept the audience on the edge of their seats and the hard-won final lines felt alarmingly relevant.
