Cyclone Repertory Company Presents | The Shakespeare Sessions

Cyclone Repertory Company Presents | The Shakespeare Sessions

Each performance includes a scholarly review clarifying the main themes as well as discussions with the students and the opportunity to participate. Cyclone Rep’s Shakespeare Sessions will guide Junior Cert and Leaving Cert learners in their understanding of The Bard’s masterpieces.

Cyclone Rep will be performing four shows at The Helix Theatre:

For Leaving Certificate students, The King Lear Session Reboot – a group of conflicted actors and a director perform the story of Lear and in the process make a journey of self discovery and The Hamlet Session – an outstanding performance and engaging analysis in which the character of Hamlet as “every-man” is explored; ”.

 For Junior Certificate students, The Romeo & Juliet Session – modern performers are directed on stage by the bard himself whose 16th century attitudes and demeanour clash with today’s: arguments, discussion and enlightenment ensue; and The Merchant Session – the most interactive of Cyclone Rep’s shows, with an entertaining and informative synthesis of analysis and performance, highlighting what a fine comedy it is.
