“What Shakespeare understands is that it is the most deeply traumatic thing you can possibly imagine, falling in love.”
In the Shakespeare Series, leading scholars, directors and actors give their perspective on the key themes of Shakespeare’s plays. Together, they explore issues of theory, practice and performance, referencing historical context as well as recent productions of each text covered.
Professor Kate McLuskie, former Director of the Shakespeare Institute, leads two directors – Lucy Bailey and Phillip Breen – and two actors – Ray Fearon and Zoe Waites – in an in–depth discussion of love and sex with reference to Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, Othello and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
