E8Eh: The Stories Of Shakey P

Charlie Dupré


Written and performed by Charlie Dupré

Classical playwriting and hip-hop meet in an electrifying lyrical brew, as
the Bard is re-imagined as a playground battle rapper!

Also featuring the Weird Sisters’ account of their dealings with Macbeth,
Othello in the style of Eminem’s Stan and a psychotically rhythmic insight
into Hamlet’s inner turmoil, Charlie uses rap and rhythm to retell some of
the best known works with a riveting contemporary slant.

Also featuring Oliver Willems & Oktawia Petronella on strings.



“Rip-roaring entertainment.. a jaw-dropping feat of characterisation” Broadway Baby

“A feat of linguistic acrobatics… the best English lesson you never had” The Scotsman

“It’s the essence of the Fringe” Fringe Guru

Here’s a hip-hop release from last year, to give a flavour of Charlie Dupré’s lyrical dexterity – imagine this combined with Shakespeare!
