Everyone knows of Romeo & Juliet as their names tease thoughts of young star-crossed lovers and their tragic end. Trapped by the feud between their families--the Montagues and the Capulets--their lives seem to tumble into an inevitable and ill-fated tragedy. The apparent “good” coming out of that “misadventured” is that they “bury their parents’ strife”.

KLSP’s unique 100-minute abridgment of this Shakespeare’s play will peel back the layers, and unveil some issues that the tale may be a metaphor of. KLSP will keep its characteristic format of performing the key scenes in Shakespeare’s words and piecing the parts together into a coherent whole with a narrative glue in contemporary English (and with a sprinkling of our local mother tongues). It is during this narration that certain now-exotic words are explained, overlooked issues underscored, questioned raised, etc.

Always innovating, KLSP in its 2017 production of Shakespeare Demystified: Macbeth made music central in its performance. This time, the company will incorporate in SD:R&J not just music but also a more physical performance, driven by the practices and philosophy of physical theatre.   



Underscoring KLSP’s educational mission--each performance will conclude with a question-and-answer session which allows students to inquire, make comments as they engage with the play and the actors. This Q&A is also a favourite part for students attending our performances.

To create this production, KLSP has gathered a youthful cast: Hana Nadira, Ali Alasri, Safia Hanifa, Ivan Chan and Phraveen Arikiah. Soon Heng will play the patriarchal roles. The production is directed by Lim Kien Lee.

KL Shakespeare Players and The Actors Studio Seni Teater Rakyat will present Shakespeare Demystified: Romeo & Juliet from 24 - 29 April 2018 in Pentas 2, klpac; and 3 - 6 May 2018 in Stage 2, penangpac.


Ticket prices: for klpac RM55, RM45 (student-concession) and RM40 each for education groups of 40 and more. For penangpac: RM45, RM35 (student-concession) and RM30 each for education groups of 40 and more.
