What happens when Shakespeare's strongest women step out of the pages of their plays and match wits in discussing their lives, their loves and how to change the ending of their story?
Joseph McGrath, Artistic Director of The Rogue Theatre, has imagined such a scenario and created Immortal Longings, an entrancing dialogue between some of the most fascinating characters in English drama.
Using a combination of Shakespeare's words and his own blank verse, McGrath has given ten of the author's women a voice beyond their own story and the opportunity to comment on each other's plots and predicaments.
This debate, between such unlikely partners as Lady Macbeth, Ophelia, Cleopatra and Juliet (among others), is a symphony of Shakespeare's words in a unique setting.
