14 actors, a bunch of musicians and the latest in video technology combine to resurrect the original opening night performance of Shakespeare’s last great play. Bristling with ideas and images from Shakespeare’s time, this entertaining and evocative work explores notions of power, knowledge and who gets possession of the remote control.
