Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang - Rose Playhouse
The Rose Playhouse, Bankside presents Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang , arranged and directed by Martin Parr at their venue in south London which runs from 4 to 29 November 2014.
Described as a "little moment of a timeless story told through Shakespeare's Sonnets", the production aims to develop the notion of the Sonnets being a slice of Shakespeare's autobiography, taking it further and investigating the desolations and joys that life affords each and every one of us.
The cast includes Katherine Heath and Lucia Capellaro. It is directed by Martin Parr whose previous productions for The Rose include 'Romeo and Juliet' and his one man adaptation of 'Doctor Faustus'.
The Rose Playhouse was Bankside's first theatre, built in 1587. Today it is an indoor archaeological site just a few hundred meters away from Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.
