    Double Double Toil and Trouble: Dogg's Hamlet, Cahoot's Macbeth

    Presented by Whistler in the Dark at BCA Plaza Black Box

    October 27 - November 19, 2011


    Double Double Toil and Trouble: Dogg's Hamlet, Cahoot's Macbeth

    A Witches’ Brew of Shakespeare Re-mixed in rep with Ionesco's Macbett, produced by imaginary beasts

    Dogg’s Hamlet, Cahoot’s Macbeth
    by Tom Stoppard
    directed by Meg Taintor

    Two short plays divided by a comma but united by common themes.

    In the first play, three students are setting up for their production of a fifteen-minute Hamlet to be performed in its original language. The catch? These students speak Dogg - a language comprised of English words but with different meanings. But when an English-speaking delivery man arrives with their set components, both languages break down and new ways of communication must be devised. Capped off with a hilarious 15-minute Hamlet, this is Stoppard at his word-playing gleeful best.

    In the second play, renegade actors stage a secret performance of Shakespeare’s Macbeth that becomes a stark and moving metaphor for resistance in a time of censorship.

    Whistler in the Dark is thrilled to present this linguist’s delight - an evening of word-wizardry from the writer of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead and Arcadia.
