THE Capital is to play its part in a worldwide festival celebrating the life and works of Shakespeare.

TR Warszawa’s 2008: Macbeth, Dmitry Krymov’s mingling of two works into A Midsummer Night’s Dream (As you Like it) and Camille O Sullivan’s one person twist on The Rape of Lucrece will take to the stage at the Edinburgh International Festival this August. The World Shakespeare Festival opens today.

Jonathan Mills, Edinburgh International Festival director, said: “We are delighted to be a part of such a global celebration of Shakespeare.

“He remains a huge inspiration for artists from around the world, and it’s a great pleasure to be presenting such exciting international interpretations of his work at the Festival this summer.”
