JULIET: A Revenge Comedy

Monster Theatre—The King’s Head Pub

This smart show plays with the premise “What if some of Shakespeare’s more tragic female characters became self-aware?”, the answer is: they probably wouldn’t be too happy about their fates as written by Shakespeare. Monster Theatre always puts on a good show, and this is no exception. The acting is superb with Pippa Mackie in the lead as Juliet and Carly Pokoradi amazingly playing all the other Shakespeare leading ladies (including Lady Macbeth, Ophelia, Cleopatra, and Miranda) often all at the same time, and if that wasn’t enough, all the other characters from Romeo and Juliet. Ryan Gladstone appears as Shakespeare, who must try and deal with the revolt. Great fun! Be sure to come early as the King’s Head opens before the usual 15 minute door opening time and the show has been selling out.
