I spy with my little eye... culturo'clock!

Yes pitchouns, it's culturo'clock in Dubai, time to enjoy some theatre at DUCTAC with the Dubai Drama Group. Yesterday I saw their production of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are dead, and I enjoyed it a lot. I am no theatre critic but I've seen enough bad plays to appreciate a good one. I didn't know the story, but once I got into the absurdity of the two wandering knights, I enjoyed the writing and direction of the play. The 1h30 story follows the journey of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters of Hamlet. It feels like being in the backstage of this huge Shakespeare play, where every character tries to find it's way while the main action is left unseen to the public. It reminded me a lot of Beckett's "Waiting for Godot", but even more intricate since Tom Stoppard adds a mise-en-abime (story within a story) to the constant rhetoric and nonsense of the dialogues. I can honestly say that all of the actors are doing a great job, and I particularly applaud Rosencrantz and Guildenstern who rocked some pretty amazing monologues. 
The Dubai Drama Group will be performing 25th January / 1st February: 4.30 PM & 7.30 PM, tickets are priced at 80aed, more information here.
