Blood Will Have Blood


Scenes from selected plays by William Shakespeare

Blood Will Have Blood used the seven ages of man speech from As You Like It as the framework for ordering selected scenes from Othello, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Richard III, and Hamlet. The production was set in a manmade disaster zone, as director John Sheedy described it, “a neutral zone that had some sort of disaster impact on it that affected the world, globally”.
