BWW Review: JULIUS CAESAR at Bourglinster CastleBWW Review: JULIUS CAESAR at Bourglinster Castle
by David Sousa Lopes - Jun 29, 2018

Luxembourg is not known its Shakespearean theatre, so you know you will catch the attention of the public when you advertise that Julius Caesar is coming to town. On 25 June, the castle of Bourglinster welcomed the TNT Theatre Company for a one-day-only rendition of the famous play. A thought-provoking masterpiece that makes one reflect about major questions of politics and society. Does the most virtuous of men deserve to rule with unlimited power? Can the ignorant and impressionable be trusted to make the right decisions, or will they eventually lead their country to ruin? (more...)

by BWW News Desk - May 15, 2018

The UK revival of Beirut by American playwright and author Alan Bowne is set to be performed at Park Theatre from 12th June to 7th July 2018. Written in the 1980s at the height of the AIDS crisis (which the playwright died of at 44 years old), Beirut is a cutting examination of a society ravaged by a nameless disease. Although written at a particular moment in history, the play transcends the issues of its time, and at its heart is a dark love story, questioning how society deals with the 'abnormal' in a society gone mad with fear and ignorance. The issues explored are particularly relevant to 2018, when viruses such as Sars and Zika are prominent, and with an increasing and inevitable resistance to antibiotics. (more...)
