4 Apr 2014


The University’s Shakespeare Team, led by Dr. Katrine Wong from the Department of English, is one of the 12 finalists in the 10th Chinese Universities Shakespeare Festival organised by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). The team will present at the finals two scenes from Othello – a boudoir scene in which Desdemona (Lavina San, FED Year 2) and Emilia (Jungle Hu, FED Year 3) discuss issues of marital fidelity, followed by domestic disputes between Othello (Jim Liang, FAH Year 3) and Desdemona. The team would like to thank FAH for supporting the cost of production, as well as Mandy Lo (FAH PG student) for her help in designing costume, hair and make-up.
