*英语演出中文字幕

这是一个美丽、幽默、伤感而真诚的故事,围绕一个心底的痂、负罪、愧疚和极端的爱与失落在经典文学式的嬉笑怒骂中喧闹地展开,蜿蜒直旋而上,直到人将迟暮的平静和最终的接纳让一切和解并铭刻成回忆。

约瑟夫,美国百老汇著名导演,在世界各地他演绎及导演了无数莎士比亚的经典,如今他留在中国,甘于做一位孜孜不倦的北大老师,为北大的学生排练了无数生动的而又热情满溢的经典戏剧。孩子们对戏剧的理解及情感感染力甚至比专业演员更为动人。是约瑟夫让戏剧成为了孩子们的生活。
《一个人的莎士比亚》曾是他孩时的经历?!他是如何用生命去演绎一个人的独角戏。

剧情简介:
《一个人的莎士比亚》是一部原创英语独角戏,以魔幻的手法编织出一个发生在迷茫的六岁男孩儿与苛刻严厉的莎士比亚老师之间令人捧腹而又感人至深的故事。六岁的时候,格雷夫斯寄宿在一所英国的男子学校,不幸遇到了才华横溢而又嗜酒如命的瑞维尔校长对新生开展的军训式莎士比亚教育。在迷茫与懵懂、羞愧与坚持中,格雷夫斯渐渐走进了瑞维尔校长的莎士比亚那充满爱、激情、诗歌、悔恨、沉淀的丰富世界:
“仿佛回到《放牛班的春天》,一段奇特、疯狂、真实的英国往事
莎士比亚、瑞维尔和我
夜晚过去了,日光向前伸展着。
在我身后躺着无法忘怀的死者,
但在我身边走着眼神迷离的女人
她在太阳升起时就这么大笑着……”

Revel’s World of Shakespeare was written and will be performed by Joseph Graves, and directed by Xiaoqing Hu. Graves draws heavily on his considerable personal experiences with Shakespearean plays and study of the plays’ articulations. Graves magically weaves a wildly comedic and deeply moving tale of childhood confusion and exploration, relating it all to the greatest of English writers, William Shakespeare.

At six years of age Graves was introduced to Shakespeare at the difficult hand and demanding style of his brilliant, though drunken teacher, Clive T. Revel (whose last name inspires the title of the piece) headmaster of The Chelsea School for Boys in London, England were young Graves matriculated. The first two years of their alternately hilarious and stormy relationship, (which eventually spanned some forty years) are explored in depth in this provocative, thought provoking and charmingly written new American play.

Revel’s World of Shakespeare has so far performed in Beijing, Hong Kong, Macau and Taipei.

Joseph Graves
Artistic Director of PKU Institute of World Theatre and Film. Over the last twenty-eight years, Joseph has directed over fifty stage productions, including classical, contemporary, musical theatre and opera, in America, Great Britain and China, such productions include: Romeo and Juliet, Richard III, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, The Alchemist, The Sea Gull, Three Sisters, The Private Lives of The Master Race and Fiddler on the Roof at such notable venues as The Welsh National Theatre, The Royal Court Theatre, and The Haymarket Theatre (West End) in Great Britain and numerous theatres throughout America as well as several in China.

Graves has also written extensively for film and stage, including such films as Sweetwater for Viacom, and Hannah and Jack for Academy Award winner, Sir John Mills, along with many others. His plays, such as Revoco, Bunyan, and Word Circus, have received productions at such venues as The Wilshire Theatre in Los Angeles, Perth Repertory Theatre in Great Britain and The Moscow Art Theatre in Russia. His latest play, Revel’s World of Shakespeare, was given its world premiere in Beijing in the summer of 2005.
