Shakespeare on the University Stage, Paperback / softback Book

Shakespeare on the University Stage Paperback / softback

Edited by Andrew James (University of North Carolina, Charlotte) Hartley


Featuring essays from seventeen international scholars, this exciting new collection is the first sustained study of Shakespeare on the university and college stage.

Treating the subject both historically and globally, the essays describe theatrical conditions that fit neither the professional nor the amateur models and show how student performances provide valuable vehicles for artistic construction and intellectual analysis.

The book redresses the neglect of this distinctive form of Shakespeare performance, opening up new ways of thinking about the nature and value of university production and its ability to draw unique audiences.

Looking at productions across the world - from Asia to Europe and North America - it will interest scholars as well as upper-level students in areas such as Shakespeare studies, performance studies and theatre history.
