29-31 March 2018 Shakespeare in Saigon by Cenarth Fox An unusual love story with Shakespeare as matchmaker. David Cadwallader is a soon-to-be retired English literature high school teacher. His students and friends send him off in style. But when he gets home to his wife of thirty years, he discovers terrible news and worse. Suddenly David’s retirement plans for travel and writing are lost. He hits the bottle. Then suddenly a stranger, a young woman recently arrived from Vietnam, knocks loudly on his door. David meets Thanh who also faces a crisis. Communication is almos impossible as neither speaks the other’s language. David helps Thanh who repays him with food. Then David offers to teach Thanh English but not what you might expect; ’tis Elizabethan English, the language of Shakespeare. Their lessons proceed with humour and spirit. Is Thanh falling in love with the much older David? Both have secrets and when these are revealed, each is surprised and shocked. The twist is both surprising and heart-warming.
