Shakespeare and Audience in Practice Paperback / softback

Part of the Shakespeare in Practice series


What do audiences do as they watch a Shakespearean play?

What makes them respond in the ways that they do? This book examines a wide range of theatrical productions to explore the practice of being a modern Shakespearean audience.

It surveys some of the most influential ideas about spectatorship in contemporary performance studies, and analyses the strategies employed both in the texts themselves and by modern theatre practitioners to position audiences in particular ways.
