In this witty satire of power, Shakespeare is put on trial for falsifying history and defaming Richard Sandaime, the Grand Master of Ikebana. Shakespeare is being prosecuted by none other than Maachan of Venice. Maachan, who has forever been condemned by the writing of Shakespeare, pits wits against the writer. Who will win?

In the year that celebrates the 400th death anniversary of William Shakespeare, Singapore International Festival of Arts 2016 takes a spin on the international multitude of productions commemorating this iconic playwright of all times. In Ong’s production, games of gender surround Shakespeare, a male writer besieged by 'female' characters. In comic turn after comic turn, Ong casts rising star, kabuki onnagata (female impersonator), Kazutaro Nakamura as Richard Sandaime.

Performed in Japanese, English and Bahasa Indonesia, with English surtitles.

Produced by Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA).

Co-produced by Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre / Shizuoka Performing Arts Center (SPAC).
