Peter Brook’s Kilkenny bow is finally upon us. And the excitement couldn’t be higher as the 2009 Kilkenny Arts Festival reaches its final weekend. The C.I.C.T/Theatre Des Bouffes Du Nord production has been readying itself in the Watergate Theatre since yesterday and by all accounts it’s looking stunning. Love Is My Sin sees a performance of some of William Shakespeare’s most beautiful sonnets. Chosen by Brook himself, they are being performed by Natasha Parry and Bruce Myers.
As we’ve stated ad nauseam at this stage, this is one of the theatrical events of the year in Ireland and if you’re any sort of theatre aficionado, you’d be a fool to miss it. It should be sublime.
Here’s a recent picture of Peter Brook himself, arrived in Kilkenny!
Love Is My Sin opens tonight and runs until Saturday 15th August at 8pm nightly. The performance will be 50 minutes with no interval. Tickets can be procured on the Kilkenny Arts Festival Box Office hotline of 056 – 7752175.
