BSS: Julius Caesar (9-14 Nov ’09)

  BSS     Julius Caesar
Studio  9-14 November 2009 at 8pm

Julius Caesar 

Shakespeare’s savage exposé of the effect of power upon its seekers has only been performed once in Brussels in the last 30 years.   This all-female production will not pontificate on gender politics: it will try to create a a slanted look at a great and quotable play. The cast has many fine actresses, so come along, do!  

BSS: A Chaste Maid in Cheapside (9-13 Feb ’10)

A Chaste Maid in Cheapside

A Chaste Maid in Cheapside
by Thomas Middleton
A Chaste Maid in Cheapside
directed by Jonathon Sawdon
9-13 February 2010 at 8pm

Directed by Jonathon Sawdon, best known for his performances for the BSS as Hamlet and Henry V. Jonathon writes that this play is about:
“Corruption, money, sex! Deception, greed, gluttony, money, sex! Cruelty, infidelity, betrayal, money, sex! Pepentance, marnage, money and er…sex!
A Chaste Maid In Cheapside, containing “much humour though very little chastity” is Thomas Middleton’s darkly comic masterpiece. Written c. 1613, though long neglected until the 2Oth century, this Jacobean satire audaciously intertwines ribaldry and profanity to leave you laughing and squirming in equal measure.”

Join the BSS for a night of “bed and bawd”!

One of Shakespeare’s least known and least performed plays, this is a sage of high politics.
A weak leader is yesterday’s news, yet pacts and coalitions are ever present…
