“Mad world! Mad kings! Mad composition! MCS Drama presents a brand new adaptation of King John, one of the least performed but most politically cutting and gravely comic of Shakespeare's history plays.” --description from Fringe programme. The performance was an abridged version of Shakespeare's play, and was also performed at Magdalen College School, Oxford.

MCS Drama
Directed by Alex Thomas, performed by students of the Magdalen College School, Oxford.

Selected Review:
BroadwayBaby review (3 stars): "a good degree of passion and energy is injected into Shakespeare’s dramatic tale. Whilst not the most adventurous take on King John, it still provides an entertaining hour of murder and rebellion for audiences to sink their teeth into."
