Shakespeare Republic: #AllTheWebsAStage (The Lockdown Chronicles)
Click to Unmute
Filmed in lockdowns during the global pandemic … Twenty four souls, six cities – one shared experience of being human.
Using Shakespeare's original text and characters, we shine a light on the human experience in a COVID-19 world.

Building on the success of the previous two seasons of the multi award-winning web series, Shakespeare Republic (2015-2017), this new season of the work turns the lens on Shakespeare's characters in lockdown, featuring actors from Australia and around the world.

Created, adapted and directed by Australian actor/director, Sally McLean (who directed all the actors in real time via video conferencing from Melbourne, as they simultaneously filmed themselves on their smartphones in their respective homes across 3 continents), we look through a myriad of windows from Australia, Scotland, England and the USA into the current shared experience of human beings in isolation. Reflecting a plethora of experiences in lockdown, including home schooling, YouTube bingeing, mental health, death of a loved one, Zoom dating and more, we train a lens on the shared human experience that connects us, despite our physical separation.

Featuring actors with credits from Broadway, the West End, Shakespeare’s Globe and mainstream Film & TV, both established and emerging ... this is deliberately Shakespeare with a difference..

Starring: Leo Atkin, Dominic Brewer, Don Bridges, Maya Cohen, Frank Collison, Tim Constantine, Mark Dickinson, Danielle Farrow, Laura Gardner, Jodi Haigh, Philip Hayden, Justin Hosking, Christopher Kirby, Emma Kniebe, Jessica Martin, Sally McLean, Mark McMinn, Robert Myles, Yolanda Ovide, Sarah Peachey, Miguel Perez, Sass Pinci, Phoebe Anne Taylor, Caris Vujcec

This season is ranked as the No. 1 Anthology Series for 2021 & in the Top 10 web series in the world (WSWC 2021)
