Playreading The Two Noble Kinsmen, Nov 9 (KiRSe)

TNKtpCome and read the last play Shakespeare ever wrote. Not The Tempest.

A story with an interrupted wedding, fighting and romance in a wood outside Athens, madness, morris dancing and the intervention of the gods: Shakespeare wrote The Two Noble Kinsmen in partnership with one of the most talented of his successors, John Fletcher, the last in their series of collaborations. It’s based on Chaucer (The Knight’s Tale) and revamps a lot of situations and character-types from earlier in Shakespeare’s career.

Two major writers adapting a third, Shakespeare’s language in its latest and most complex phase, and a story you don’t know: what’s not to like?

The Two Noble Kinsmen reading will be in the Gallery of the Rose Theatre in Kingston at 6pm on Thursday, 9th November. You don’t need to know the play or have any acting experience, it will be a cold reading with parts chosen or allocated on the spot. Please bring a copy of the play with you if you can, but there will be a few copies available on the night.
