Shakespeare at the Tanks in tropical manga. What the?

And now for something completely different.

Shakespeare with a strange twist, weaves it way to the Tanks at the Botanic Gardens from this Friday.

A Tropical Manga adaptation of Shakespeare’s darkly comic work. This adaption holds the mirror to morality and immorality, power and innocence, truth and deception, honour and dishonour, love and rejection in Measure for Measure.

On the back of two sell out seasons of Shakespeare’s The Tempest and The Merchant of Venice, local theatre group, Tropical Arts says this production reflects the diverse tropical location, communities and lifestyles of the Far North.

The cast and crew are drawn from international seasoned professionals, students, drama teachers, children and enthusiastic community actors with varying levels of experience who all share a passion for the performing arts.
