1 - 2 weeks availability
Written by the only American director to direct and fight-choreograph all of Shakespeare's plays, this text represents an expert and practical guide to the Bard's oeuvre. From Henry VI through The Tempest, each play is explored in its full theatrical complexity, with particular attention paid to directorial and acting challenges, character quirks and development, and the particularities of Shakespearean language. Directing successes are recounted, but the failures are not shied away from, making this an indispensable text for anyone interested in producing Shakespeare's plays.
Paul Barry has spent 60 years as a professional actor and musician on stage and in films, and has directed over 300 plays and musicals.
