One man’s journey in discovering the work of The Bard informs an off-Broadway show which comes to the stage of the Dunamaise Arts Centre next Tuesday, October 21.

‘In Acting Shakespeare’ is a superbly engaging one-man show, arriving on tour in Ireland this October following a two-month sold out run off-Broadway in New York City.

‘In Acting Shakespeare’ is a funny, touching and uplifting story of one man’s discovery of Shakespeare, acting and language. Freely adapted, with permission, from Sir Ian McKellen’s ‘Acting Shakespeare’, the wonderfully talented James De Vita tells his own story of a young fisherman searching for a new career.

This fun, fervent tribute to one man’s personal journey, deftly weaves some of Shakespeare’s most famous monologues with James’ days as Long Island fisherman and his nights as a classical actor. This is a show for anyone interested in Shakespeare or theatre.

Backstage.com described the play as “...a splendid, delightfully personal comedic concoction...”

‘In Acting Shakespeare’ will come to the Dunamaise as part of a nationwide tour. Full details are available at www.shakespeareireland.com.

The show will begin at 8pm next Tuesday, for bookings visit www.dunamaise.ie.
