Scepre Theatre Presents:
Horatio
Draw thy breath in pain to tell my story.”

So said Hamlet unto Horatio as he slowly passed away into the undiscovered country. Now Horatio has to deal with his new king Fortinbras and find a way to sum up Hamlet with nothing but his own words. How does one show the true character and life of a man? Did Horatio really even know the guy? He spent more time talking to himself than he ever did to his best friend. And now there is someone new whispering in his ear...

Horatio is a 2014 Fringe Festival production to be performed at BATS Theatre Out of Site on the 10th-14th of February.

The Company, Sceptre Theatre, as a deep passion towards performing classic texts and new texts that are inspired and influenced by those classics. We intend to recognise and pay homage to these texts by staging them with originality and immediacy that will inspire and affect a modern audience.

 

James Cain writes, directs and performs the titular role. His experience with Shakespeare has been extensive, having travelled to and performed upon the Globe Stage with the Young Shakespeare Company in 2010, thanks to Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand. He is currently in his third year at Victoria University doing a BA in Film and Theatre.



Miryam Jacobi plays Imogen, Horatio's sister , the sister newly arrived from Wittenberg to see the change in Denmark after Hamlet's death. Miryam
has also travelled to the Globe with the 2012 Young Shakespeare Company. She is about to continue her second year of acting at Toi Whakaari.

Jed Davies plays Fortinbras, the new king after Hamlet proves to be manipulative and untrustworthy. Jed has an extensive knowledge and love for all Classics, particularly Shakespeare. He is currently studies Classics at Victoria University.



Keely McCann is the Production Manager of Horatio and currently studies at Toi Whakaari.

Because this is a Fringe Festival production our budget is relatively low; we require $600 to help us create an Elizabethan world that pays homage to kings, fools and the language of the Bard.
