Staging History

  • Share on Tumblr

It was a pleasure to welcome Janette Dillon to The Shakespeare Centre last week. She is Professor of Drama at the University of Nottingham and came along to speak about her new book in the Oxford Shakespeare Topics series.

Janette explores ways of thinking about how Shakespeare’s history plays were originally staged. What was their dramaturgy like? How did they appear within their theatrical spaces? How can we begin to find out? What, if anything, is distinctive about how Shakespeare bodied forth historical drama?

You can listen to Janette read from her book by clicking on the audio-post below, and you can find out more via the Oxford University Press website.
