William Shakespeare is known as “the bard” all over Britain. He is simply the most important playwright England has ever had and – arguably – perhaps the best-known author in the world.

His successful plays are manifold: “Hamlet”, “Othello”, “Macbeth”, King Lear”, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” to name but a few. However, nowadays his plays are a difficult task to perform, especially for a school drama group. In Shakespeare’s time, women were not allowed to act on stage (originally, even Juliet had to be played by a teenage boy!), so there are only a few roles for women in his plays. Romeo and Juliet is the only exception with a few more female characters, which made me suggest the play last year. We all had great respect for this task, as this meant learning lines in Shakespeare’s blank verses and making a real effort with the stage (e.g. the famous balcony-scene!).

Anyway, lots of hard work and many hours of rehearsals took us nearer to our goal and tonight you’ll witness Shakespeare in his original language and cast…oh well, not quite. Admittedly there are some small cuts in the plot and in opposite to the 16th century we’ll not have boys playing girls but the other way round, which we’ve also never done before. But that was the price we were willing to pay to do something unique: performing Romeo and Juliet with our KDG! As you like it…
