Written by local playwright Douglas Roberts, Shakespeare’s Canon is a magical romp celebrating some of the bard’s most popular and well-known pieces – in short form. Originally performed in 2004, it seemed appropriate to perform the play again with a new generation in the Eastgate’s celebratory tenth year back in August 2014. As this edit highlights, it is more Blackadder and Horrible Histories than the slightly torturous school Shakespeare endured by so many – and all brought to life by the young players of Shakespeare at Traquair. Filmed at the Eastgate Theatre by Anthony Newton, this production was directed and produced by Kath Mansfield and Richard Nisbet.
