History

Stills
'The costumes and overall interpretation is a modernist approach. All the sheriff’s men and soldiers wear high-visibility jackets and oversized police hats, with CCTV cameras everywhere. In fact, this production comes across as more of a satirical interpretation of Britain than a prism through which to view how Argentineans view their own country. As well as the CCTV cameras and the high-visibility jackets (and also the rain), the whole costume design and staging seem to show the worst parts of Britain’. [Craig Melson: www,playshakespeare com].
