Shakespeare – Bard Like That !

400 Years Celebrating His Work
On April 23, 2016 Deborah Jean-Baptiste-Samuel and The Oratory Foundation presented “Shakespeare – Bard Like That”. This dramatic production featured excerpts from six (6) plays, sonnets and fashion.
The Oratory Foundation joined the world to pay tribute to Shakespeare, this son of Stratford-Upon-Avon, this Swan of Avon whose work is timeless. There were pulsating performances from the plays Julius Caesar, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Merchant of Venice and The Tempest.
Deborah has to date taken eleven (11) of her students to Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) in Stratford –Upon-Avon and the Globe Theatre in London. That exposure has really bolstered the young thespians as they continue to deliver with robust rendition.
The Oratory Foundation has to date performed seven (7) of Shakespeare’s plays with some being staged with Caribbean interpretations.
April 23 1616 to April 23 2016, 400 years after his passing Naparima Bowl was all aglow with scenes from the plays as the show celebrated Shakespeare and his contribution.

Shakespeare – Bard Like That !


Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar was portrayed through Caribbean lens, and raised memories of Caribbean social upheaval and rebellion. When after treachery and betrayal Julius Caesar is murdered, the potency of Shakespeare’s lines bear witness: “How many ages hence shall this our lofty scene be acted over, in states unborn and accents yet unknown!”
