Day Two Fringe Festival Screening at 7

Today at 7pm on our facebook page we are delighted to feature “Caliban” a play written by Maggie Rose who lives in Milan.

Tiffany Parker 0 417

The excerpt featured is Scene 4, which sees Caliban struggling to connect with nature in Milan. Four hundred years have gone by, and Caliban has arrived with Prospero and Miranda in the middle of a contemporary Milan, full of cars, and pollution with people in their usual rush so they don't even notice them. It opens as he is on his knees working in the garden. Matteo Francesconi is Caliban.

Our digital fringe festival is linking up to the Letters Live #ReadALetter project. Contributors are being asked to write a letter from a Shakespeare character or a character inspired by one of his plays and then read it online with members of the company on Tuesday at 4pm. It is open to all and recordings of all the letters will be sent to the project. If the writer/contributor does not want to read the letter themselves then one of our members will read it for them.
