Play On

New Zealand/Aotearoa

“If music be the food of love, play on…”

Fresh from the team behind Fly My Pretties comes Play On, a celebration of Shakespeare set to contemporary music.

In a world first, Tui-nominated songwriter and award-winning composer Paul McLaney has enlisted the help of high-profile musicians to perform a number of Shakespeare’s most well-loved soliloquies as a song cycle.

Play On will feature performances from McLaney himself alongside Julia Deans & Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle), with accompaniment from the EDIN string section, featuring Rachel Wells, Jessica Hindin & Mahuia Bridgeman-Cooper.

To celebrate the August release of Play On: The Album, this one-off show combines some of New Zealand’s best acting and music for an unforgettable experience.

To the point: Shakespeare in song/contemporary music/award-winning composer/accomplished performers/accessible.
