Shakespeare at the Tanks 2020

Shakespeare’s Sonnets & Verse

Twelve community theatre directors from Tropical Arts have taken the challenge to each bring a piece of Shakespeare’s poetry to the stage.  The theme of “the Elements” stitches together a celebration of our community resilience as we reunite in the new world.  Raw, diverse and poetic theatre. 

One show only performed on the 17th October, 2020 at Tank 3, Tanks Arts Centre, Collins Avenue, Cairns, Queensland, Australia.
