A remarkable experiment in language - Makbed!
Shakespeare in Pidgin - Ken Campbell staged Macbeth as a tribal rock musical
Ken Campbell thinks that Pidgin should be recognised as a World Language - Wol Wantok. It can be learned in a couple of days and is a perfectley satisfactory means of communication for millions of people in the South Seas region.
To illustrate just how sophisticated a language it is, Ken worked with a group of actors on a translation of the Scottish play of Shakespeare into Pidgin. And what do you know - it improved it!
