Forests is a new Shakespearean odyssey imagined by one of Europe’s most prominent theatre directors, Calixto Bieito, whose passionate and radical interpretations of classics have stimulated controversy and earned him critical acclaim.
Composed from original verse from Shakespeare’s woodland and heath scenes, the play takes audiences from As You Like It’s forest of Arden through the moving trees of Macbeth’s Birnam Wood, ending in the bare wilderness of King Lear’s cliffs of Dover: a vivid theatrical journey from the calmness of paradise to the uncertainties of purgatory and finally into the flames of hell.
Forests features an international cast led by Catalan actors Josep Maria Pou, Roser Camí and English actor George Costigan.
