Dogs of War: Shakespeare’s Soldiers Review: DidYouWeekend

Sage Theatre Institute launched its debut and premiere of, “Shakespeare’s Soldiers: The Dogs of War”, a rich, lively and passionate piece about William Shakespeare and his obsession with war. The piece was penned by Sage’s own Professor David Bunce, who has provided brilliant and flawless performances in a number of works, including Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, and again in Les Miserables, to name but a few. In“Dogs of War”,  Bunce takes his own notes and his own pen in hand and molds Shakespeare’s text to try and interpret Shakespeare’s obsession with war. Indeed, this work is the handshake between Bunce’s own obsession and that of Shakespeare’s. It is a colloquy of American history and Shakespeare, and the messages we are meant to learn from both of them.
