Book description

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.

Reviews

‘This highly intelligent collection of essays, written by practitioners and eyewitnesses as well as by some of the most important theatre scholars writing today, at last puts student Shakespeare onto our intellectual map. As impressive in its geographical and historical scope as it is in its depth, Shakespeare on the University Stage reveals campus production as a rich, diverse and scandalously under-studied field of Shakespearean performance, now at last ripe for analysis and appreciation.'

Michael Dobson - University of Birmingham
