The Stories of Shakey P, Catford

The Stories of Shakey P
Broadway Theatre, Catford, London  
Performed in English
March 16-17, 2016    

Created and performed by Charlie Dupré                   

Hip-hop meets a Shakespeare lesson in performance poet Charlie Dupré's 'The Stories of Charlie P'. Part of the Catford-upon-Avon festival.

“Classical playwriting and hip-hop meet in an electrifying lyrical brew, as the Bard is re-imagined as a playground battle rapper! Also featuring the Weird Sisters’ account of their dealings with Macbeth, a peak into Richard III’s therapy sessions, Othello in the style of Eminem’s Stan and a psychotically rhythmic insight into Hamlet’s inner turmoil, Charlie uses rap and character comedy to retell some of the best known works with a riveting contemporary slant."
