Description
Actors can be said to possess Shakespeare’s plays more deeply and thoroughly than any reader, scholar or theatregoer and to focus their attention on a text more minutely and intensely than a play director. The process of acting is notoriously hard to document, but this volume reaches behind famous Shakespeare performances to examine the actors' craft, their development and how they engage with play texts. It explores the techniques, interpretive approaches and performance styles of, among others, Simon Russell Beale, Sinead Cusack, Judi Dench, Kate Duchene, Colm Feore, Mariah Gale, Greg Hicks, Rory Kinnear, Kevin Kline, Adrian Lester, Ian McKellen, Vanessa Redgrave, Anthony Sher, Jonathan Slinger, Kate Valk and Harriet Walter.
