Shakespeare Republic - The Lockdown Chronicles

Watch actors from Victoria and around the world use Shakespeare’s original text and characters to shine a light on the human experience in a COVID-19 world.

Using Shakespeare’s original text and characters, we shine a light on the human experience in a COVID-19 world. This is a series where you can build your own experience, watching the episodes in any order, as they are all stand-alone pieces that eventually form a mosaic of human experience.

This new stand-alone season turns the lens on Shakespeare’s characters in lockdown, featuring actors from Australia and around the world.

Created, adapted and directed by Australian actor, Sally McLean, with the cast filming themselves in isolation, directed by Sally in real-time via Zoom from Melbourne, we look through a myriad of windows from Australia, Scotland, England and the USA into the current shared experience of human beings in isolation.
