Shylock Play (Oberon Modern Plays)

by Julia Pascal

When Warsaw Ghetto-escapee Sarah visits the Venice Ghetto she happens to witness a group of actors staging a dress rehearsal of The Merchant of Venice, upon this chance encounter Sarah is confronted by the terrible story of 'The Jew' which touches her own life.Through this emotive and provocative play Julia Pascal re-works Shakespeare’s controversial text, transposing the fervent theme of anti-Semitism raised by the bard, playing it out in a contemporary setting. Challenging the portrayal of 'The Jew' that for many years has dominated society's attitudes towards the Jewish people, Pascal ambitiously places her own text within Shakespeare's classic, producing a thoroughly thought-provoking and original work.

Shyness And Dignity

by Sverre Lyngstad Dag Solstad

Nothing in Elias' measured life, in his whole career as a teacher of literature, in his marriage to the 'indescribably beautiful' Eva, foreshadowed the events of that apparently ordinary day. He makes sure he has his headache pills and leaves for work as he has done every morning for the past twenty-five years.He is only too familiar with his pupils' hostile attitude both to his lectures and to himself, but today he feels their impatience, their oafishness, more painfully than ever before and, after their ritually dismissive and bored response to his passionate lecture on Ibsen's The Wild Duck, he reaches a point of crisis.Shyness and Dignity is the story of a man's awakening to a world that no longer recongises what he has always stood for or his talent. Dag Solstad is Norway's leading author, an icon among Scandinavian writers and a leading figure of the political left. This novel, in Sverre Lyngstad's fine translation, is one of Solstad's major works.

El sí de las niñas

by Leandro Fernández de Moratín

A dos siglos de haber sido escrita, El Sí de las Niñas sorprende por la naturalidad y la frescura de sus diálogos, así como la impresión de dinamismo que inspiran sus personajes. Esas cualidades la convirtieron en éxito cuando se estrenó, en 1806. El argumento era conocido -la joven que ama a un hombre joven, a quien quieren casar con un viejo- pero aquellos diálogos en prosa y su inesperada vuelta de tuerca fueron toda una innovación. Considerada la mejor obra de Moratín y también la mejor comedia del Siglo XVIII, siglo que no tuvo una gran producción literaria a diferencia de los anteriores. La obra respeta la Regla de las tres unidades. La unidad de acción: en la comedia dividida en tres actos. La unidad de lugar: transcurre toda la acción en una posada de Alcalá de Henares. La unidad de tiempo: la obra comienza a las 7 de la tarde y termina a las 5 de la mañana siguiente. Los personajes son: Paquita,(Doña Francisca), la jovencita de dieciséis años, su madre doña Irene, su ayudante y amiga, Rita; Don Diego, el pretendiente cincuentón, tío de Don Carlos (o don Félix), y los lacayos respectivos de ambos: Simón y Calamocha

Siamese Twins (Oberon Modern Plays)

by Griselda Gambaro Gwen MacKeith

In this absurd and forceful play, two brothers, one weak, one strong, play out a primal scene of envy, cruelty and torture as the strong exerts his power and aggression over the weak. Involuntarily, the audience finds itself complicit in the brutality witnessed onstage through Gambaro's command of a powerful and irresistible black humour. Here the absurd becomes a harrowing metaphor of the most pure and raw reality. First performed in 1967, this is an early, yet startling brilliant, work by the internationally acclaimed Argentine playwright, Griselda Gambaro. Siamese Twins runs at Theatro Technis , London, 7-25 September 2011.
