A group of students from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities recently put on five productions of selected scenes from Shakespeare’s plays, The Merry Wives of Windsor and Macbeth, in the Black Box Theatre.

The performance was well received by the audience. One student in the audience, Emily Choi, said, ‘Of all Shakespeare's plays, The Merry Wives of Windsor is the most purely farcical. And the performers did a good job in delivering emotions in an exaggerated way. Meanwhile, Macbeth portrays life at its most brutal and cynical. I was stunned by how the students portrayed the characters.’

Choi’s appreciation of the students’ performance was echoed by another student in the audience. ‘The show was great and wonderful,’ she said. ‘Even though in the beginning I did not know exactly what the play was about, the speeches came to life when the students acted them out. I could feel it. They successfully conveyed the emotions and the messages to me.’

Student performers described the task of performing Shakespeare’s plays as challenging. Apple Tang, one of the performers, said she struggled with memorising the lines and playing a man but she enjoyed the process nonetheless. ‘We had to practice a lot. We read along with the video. We all felt nervous. But our professor and teammates were so supportive and we learned a lot from one another,’ she said.
