Shakespeare's Sister (15+)
Could Shakespeare have had a sister who wrote as well as he did? After The Red Box in the 2020-2021 season and Mata Hari, Don't Blindfold My Eyes in 2022, Shakespeare's Sister is the third play written and directed by Carmen Toledo in Amsterdam. In Juan C. Tajes Microteatro at 109 Warmoesstraat. In English.
Shakespeare's Sister is a play that intertwines Shakespeare's female characters with the stories of the first actresses who debuted them, and the possible life of a female writer imagined by Virginia Wolff in one of her plays.
It is a testimony to the conditions in which these women wrote in silence in the mid-17th century or had to wait to perform on stage.
It is a story of solidarity, of the fight against sexism and discrimination in art and literature. It is a piece about duality, about cross-dressing on stage, about 'to be or not to be'. A story about women coming out of darkness. The play will be performed in English and starring the actresses: Shirley Blake and Delphine Ural.
There is a short Meet & Greet after the performance. Photos and videos are not allowed during the performance.
