A Companion to Shakespeare and Performance

A Companion to Shakespeare and Performance provides a state-of-the-art engagement with the rapidly developing field of Shakespeare performance studies. Essays by major scholars, teachers, and professional theatre makers consider the many sites at which Shakespearean drama is performed: in print, in the classroom, in the theatre, in film, on television and video, in multimedia and digital forms, and as part of a globalized and intercultural performance economy.

The Companion stands at the cutting edge of the field: several essays introduce current terms and contemporary areas of enquiry in Shakespeare and performance, while others raise questions about the dynamic interplay between Shakespearean writing and the practices of contemporary performance and performance studies. Taken as a whole, the volume productively redraws the boundaries of Shakespeare performance studies.
