Phyllida Lloyd’s gripping films of the groundbreaking Donmar Warehouse Shakespeare Trilogy, in which women play all the parts originally written for men, could not be more timely. Lloyd’s metatheatrical approach made the actors inmates in a women’s prison assuming the characters in Shakespeare’s plays and the consequences of social and criminal justice inequities are especially relevant. The casts, led by Harriet Walter, evoke with gusto that raw, tragic pain we are reliving today. Shot in front of a live audience in London at the Donmar Warehouse King’s Cross in December 2016, the films were edited to include separately shot, hand-held and GoPro footage, breaking the formality of the traditional live camera “capture” of stage productions and bringing the audience into the center of the action with thrilling immediacy. The Donmar Shakespeare Trilogy made their live U.S. premieres at St. Ann’s Warehouse: Julius Caesar in 2013, Henry IV in 2016, and The Tempest in 2017.

The human brain works in such a way that we try to make sense of everything we see. We unconsciously attempt to organise visual information by inferring meaning. Have you ever seen a cloud in the sky and thought that it resembled an animal, or some other object? This is the perfect example of your brain recognising patterns and creating order from the chaotic.
