“If you immerse yourself in lots of writing about theatre, there’s what I call a process of osmosis, it’s going to seep into your bones and into your mind.”
Theatre historian Dr Daniel Rosenthal shares his extensive knowledge on how to research performance history by comparing adaptations of King Lear at the National Theatre since 1976.
In this two-part introduction, Rosenthal unpacks the reflective memoirs of Brian Cox, Ian Holm and Richard Eyre to explore different processes and methods for bringing one of Shakespeare’s best-known tragedies to the stage.
