When a young Hollywood starlet struggles to connect with Shakespeare's Ophelia she desperately turns to method acting for salvation. Soon the boundaries between theatre and her own reality become blurred and amongst the bombs and sirens of Blitz-struck WWII London her stunning portrayal quickly becomes the performance of her life.
Method in Madness fuses both Shakespearean text and new writing with stunning physical theatre and extraordinary dance, soundtracked by the haunting music of Laura Marling. The production explores the pressure upon all actresses who tackle one of Shakespeare’s most enigmatic female characters whilst presenting the associated dangers of taking method acting too far. The play also highlights the rarely-hailed defiance of British theatre against the efforts by Nazi bombers to demoralise and divide a nation.
