MS-Directing Shakespeare: Women Direct Shakespeare Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this engaging and lively book, Elizabeth Shafer captures a sense of the creative world of women directing Shakespeare. She explores the works of such prestigious directors as Joan Littlewood, actress and director Dame Judi Dench, Gale Edwards, and Jude Kelley, and she looks at a variety of productions directed by women. In interviews with the author, the directors discuss their craft, their critics, and the innovative approaches they have brought to performances of Shakespeares plays. These thoughtful reflections on the art of directing and the challenges facing women directors will be illuminating reading for anyone interested in the world of the theater and Shakespeare.

Book News Annotation:

Mostly consisting of interviews with such directors as Joan Littlewood, Judi Dench, Gale Edwards, and Jude Kelley, this work explores both the directors' treatment of various Shakespearean plays and their approaches to the production of theater in a world where women directors are often marginalized. Mainly focusing on British productions, Schafer (drama and theater studies, U. of London) also provides a brief history of women directors of Shakespeare.
