April 2019 – RRS Discovery
In association with Dundee Rep as part of the Rep Stripped Programme

“It hath been sung at festivals,
On ’ember-eves and holidays;
And lords and ladies in their lives
Have read it for restoratives:
If you, born in these latter times,
When wit’s more ripe, accept my rhymes.
And that to hear an old man sing
May to your wishes pleasure bring
I life would wish, and that I might
Waste it for you, like taper-light.”

Gower. Pericles by William Shakespeare – Act One Scene One

On Shakespeare’s birthday seven actors will approach seven bottles. Within these seven bottles are seven scrolls. These scrolls contain all the actor will need to conjure a unique version of one of Shakespeare’s plays, for one night only, in an iconic Dundee location.
