Shakespeare has power. Miss Lucy knows it. The themes in his work speak to her. Ambition. Jealousy. Deception. Disorder. She believes in the Bard’s stories, because they’ve helped her understand her own and she thinks they’ll help others find their way too.
Taki Rua and TOA – Theatre of Auckland present ‘Cellfish’, where hardened inmates come face to face with a whole new nightmare: Shakespeare classes with Miss Lucy! Funny and insightful ‘Cellfish’ takes us behind the walls of a New Zealand Correctional Facility and the men who reside there. Some are looking to improve their parole chances, others want to kill some time and one just wants to kill. Starring highly-acclaimed actors Jason Te Kare and Carrie Green, ‘Cellfish’ gives agency to the voiceless.
