PLAYWRIGHT SCRIPTS

SHAKESPEARE'S VENGEANCE

Shakespeare’s Vengeance is a tragicomic play inspired by the theater of the absurd.

 

The story evolves within a fraternity of actors which regularly gather in homage to the god Dionysus. On those occasions, they perform a famous tragedy to themselves. Without previous knowledge of their roles, the actors can resort to improvisation and spontaneity, but never alter the play´s original plot nor its end.

 

The plot unfolds on the night when the fraternity is ready to perform Romeo and Juliet and celebrates its new member Thomas. The freshman, however, bears a secret as fascinating as the astonishing dynamics of the mysterious brotherhood.

 
 

ABOUT ME

ANDRÉ COSTA

My background as a career diplomat and former member of parliament has led me to doubt formal politics and mistrust Manichean idealism. The endless inquiry into the human nature, however, has fuelled a passion in me to chase ideas and connect the dots of the human saga.

In my day-job, I have embodied such vast amounts of cultural DNA from around the globe which, ironically enough,  has influenced my holistic and borderless nature giving expression to my writing and filmmaking.

I would love to hear from readers and viewers! Please, get in touch with me below if you have any queries or comments.
