After last year’s hit production of Under Milk Wood, WTD is delighted to renew its connection with PS/21 Chatham: The company will bring it’s unmistakable style of Ensemble Theater and passion for the work of William Shakespeare to this beloved comedy. This vibrant international ensemble of actors will take you on a journey that includes shipwreck, mistaken identities, unrequited love, feisty servants and scheming relatives…come join us for a summer night of love in all its guises!
Adrian Locher and Alexander Gifford, both of whom are award-winning, professional directors and actors with a background in stage and film, are the artistic directors of the Gloucester Theatre Company, the resident company of the newly-reopened Picturedrome Theatre in Gloucester, England.
Adrian Locher and Alexander Gifford also run the nearby ASHA Centre, an international retreat and conference venue. Adrian and Alexander host a programme at the Centre called Peace through the Performing Arts, producing plays each year with a mixed group of Jewish and Arab teenagers from Israel.
This project, championing the young as effective bringers of peace, has now been extended to a group of young South Africans from the townships of Johannesburg.
