2019年の出し物
A W.Shakespeare作
Macbeth
(上級者向け)(高校生から大人まで)
欲望にとりつかれるマクベス、夫人の血塗られた手、3人の魔女の予言が織りなす 衝撃の物語。Shakespeare の悲劇を90分に編集してありますが、原文の輝くような英語は何ら搊なわれておりません。
Three witches tell the warrior Macbeth that he will be king of Scotland. Can he simply sit back and wait for the prophesy to be fulfilled – or should he follow his wife’s advice and kill the present king?
Macbeth’s decision to take his fate into his own hands and murder Duncan leads him to power and fame; but it also leads to further murders, to war, to madness and despair, to the disintegration of the country and of the natural world order.
B Peter Griffith 作
The Tyrants' Kiss

Shakespeareの劇“Pericles”を基にしています。困難を乗り越える男の悲劇的な、しかし最後は幸せとなる恋物語。

Twelfth Night | Theatre to learn English


(A)Macbeth

White Horse Theatre's abridgement of the play, in which the whole story is told by the witches, brings out all the macabre horror of this fascinating tale. Shakespeare's original language is retained, and at the same time the play reveals a frightening relevance to the corruption and power-struggles between war-lords that dominate many parts of the contemporary world.

(B)The Tyrant's Kiss

The Tyrant's Kiss is a new contemporary version of Shakespeare's play Pericles. This play is written in modern English, closely following the story-line of its Shakespearean original... and at the same time revealing depths of frightening contemporary relevance.
(C)Honesty

Extract from the script
Annie: Down to the left there - he's going towards the station.
Tim: Quick - head him off!
Annie: Grab him!
Tim: Somebody stop that man!
Annie: Stop that thief!
Tim: Catch him!
Annie: Stop that man!
Tim: Where is he?
Annie: He's over there!
Tim: He's in the station!
Annie: He's running down the platform!
Tim: He's getting on the train. He's getting away!

(D)The Firebird

Extract from the script 'The Firebird' Ivan:This is amazing. I've got a bird that can fly, and sing, and talk! Firebird:Ivan, please let me out. Ivan:What? Firebird:Please let me out. It is horrible being in a cage. Ivan:But if I let you out, I won't have my wonderful bird any more.

This delightful dramatisation of a Russian folk-tale is suitable for pupils in their third and fourth years of learning English - an exciting story, involving music, dance, and audience participation.

(E) The Mice in the Clock

Extract from the script 'The Mice in the Clock'
Arthur:Yes, this is our bedroom. And this is the bed. I like to lie on our bed.
Isa: Yes, my husband likes to lie on the bed. Why don't you do some work?This is the bedroom.
Arthur:Me? Work? Oh... tomorrow.
Isa:What?
Arthur:Tomorrow I can work. Today I am tired. Today I lie on the bed.
Isa:He is a lazy fat mouse.
