Once again, multi award winning director, writer, teacher and actress, Clare Mortimer, directs a professional cast in action-packed performances which keep audiences enthralled and help learners to understand and enjoy Shakespeare.

With her wealth of experience as a Matric English teacher and marker (both in private and Government schools) Clare has given the greatest of care to the scripts, whilst cleverly keeping the productions to a manageable two hours for Hamlet, and 2 hours 10 minutes for Othello. Each production closely follows all the relevant themes the learners need to know.

With its varied themes of racism, love, jealousy and betrayal, Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, Othello. remains as relevant to present day audiences as it ever was.

Often hailed as Shakespeare’s greatest work, Hamlet Prince of Denmark focuses on themes of death, betrayal, greed, murder and revenge. Often described as a typical “Revenge Play”, any careful study reveals it to be very much more. Does a good and purposeful life on earth triumph? Are vile and criminal acts always punished? Further, what is the purpose of our lives in the time we are given if decency has the same end as treachery?

These questions are valid today – in our homes, our schools and among our leaders.
