New season of Shakespeare Republic has first festival screening today in the UK!

Today is the day! Our first festival screening will be taking place at approximately 5.30pm tonight (UK time – about 10 hours’ from now) at the Nightpiece International Film Festival in the UK.

Usually part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Nightpiece had to rethink plans for this year’s fest when Edinburgh had to cancel, and are now running a socially distanced festival at The Avenue Theatre, Sittingbourne, Kent, UK for this year only.

And we are SO thrilled to have Yolanda Ovide in her stunning performance as “Juliet” kick off our festival run as the first of two screenings from the series at the festival this weekend, the other being Frank Collison in his beautiful performance as “Prospero”.

Wishing everyone at Nightpiece a fabulous festival this weekend and sending much love and support from Melbourne.
