DOGG’S HAMLET, CAHOOT’S MACBETH

Dogg's HamletDOGG’S HAMLET,  CAHOOT’S MACBETH

By Tom Stoppard

Directed by Kevin Confoy

In Dogg’s Hamlet, a group of young actors are setting up for their production Hamlet, performed in its original language. The catch? These students speak “Dogg” – a language comprised of English words, but with different meanings. When an English-speaking delivery man arrives with their set components, both languages break down and new ways of communication must be devised. Capped off with a hilarious 15-minute Hamlet. This is Stoppard at his word-playing, gleeful best.

In Cahoot’s Macbeth, the second play in Tom Stoppard’s pairing, renegade actors stage a secret performance of Shakespeare’s Macbeth that becomes a stark and moving metaphor for resistance in a time of censorship.

“The incorrigibly playful Stoppard has never been more serious than in this most playful of his works [Dogg’s Hamlet and Cahoot’s Macbeth]. Like George Orwell, Stoppard knows that language and liberty are intertwined: when language is perverted, corrupted or forcibly repressed, so is liberty.”—Newsweek
