Summary
  • "Based on Peter Holland's wide experience as a reviewer of stage productions, English Shakespeares explores the full extent of Shakespeare performances in England over the last decade."
  • "As a regular reviewer for Shakespeare Survey and the BBC, Holland has examined the variety, the strengths and the problems of English productions. His introductory chapter points to themes which are taken up in the detailed accounts that follow: the size and scale of different theatres, the difficulties of over-familiarity, the power of director's theatre, the possibilities of design, the excitement of new actors, the discoveries of regionalism and the variety of playing spaces in which Shakespeare is performed. The main part of the book is a chronological account of productions which charts the work of several English companies, including the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Royal National Theatre, Cheek by Jowl, Northern Broadsides and the English Shakespeare Company
  • A final chapter compares the English experience with productions elsewhere, including America, France, Germany and Russia."--BOOK JACKET
