When directors approach Shakespeare, is the play always the thing - or might something else sometimes be the thing?

How can directing produce fresh contexts for Shakespeare's work?

Part of the innovative series Shakespeare in Practice, this book introduces students to current practices of directing Shakespeare. Ewert explores how the conventions and creative tropes of today's theatre make meaning in Shakespeare production now. The 'In Theory' section starts with an analysis of theatre production and directing more generally before looking at the specific Shakespeare context. The 'In Practice' section offers a wonderful range of production examples that showcase the wide breadth of approaches to directing Shakespeare today, from the 'conventional' to the most experimental.

Providing a useful general overview of directing Shakespeare on stage today, this is an ideal text for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying 'Shakespeare in Performance' in Literature, Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies departments. This book will also inspire students studying directing as part of a Theatre programme, and scholars, performers and lovers of Shakespeare everywhere.
