DUCT presents a night of classical theatre, with ‘The Lovers’, a dark adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, followed by a modern adaptation of ‘Everyman’, the Medieval morality play.
DUCT presents a double-bill of student-written adaptations of classical plays! ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is a magical romp through a forest. ‘The Lovers’ asks whether it is quite so comedic when the trappings of fairies and mechanicals fall away, leaving us with a broken man begging us for answers. We must face the fact that we can give him none. ‘Everyman’ both isolates us and brings us together as we follow one man's journey to the afterlife. Filled with more questions than answers, we confront our own mortality in Everyman's journey to discover what it is that makes us human.
