News > Royal Shakespeare Company recite Bohemian Rhapsody

Added on 11-Dec-2008

Stratford theatre-goers are being treated to a taste of Bohemian Rhapsody Shakespeare-style within their current production Don John produced by the Kneehigh Theatre.

Set in England during the 1978 winter of discontent, cold hearts seek comfort and poor souls look for love. With a sensational score of specially commissioned music, Kneehigh bring their renowned brand of physical storytelling to this sexy tale.

When the dangerous, naughty and irresistible Don John returns home after committing murder, he sings a few unmistakable and perfectly placed lines of Bohemian Rhapsody…‘Mama, just

killed a man, put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger now he’s dead, Mama, life had just begun, but now I’ve gone and thrown it all away…’

Don Jon plays in repertoire at The Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, from 12 December 2008 – 10 January 2009.
