Front Cover
Robert Smallwood
Cambridge University Press, 1998 - Drama - 212 pages
This is the fourth volume of essays by actors with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Twelve actors including Sir Derek Jacobi, Jane Lapotaire and Julian Glover describe the Shakespearian roles they played in productions between 1992 and 1997. The plays covered include The Merchant of Venice, Love's Labour's Lost, The Taming of the Shrew, The Winter's Tale, and Romeo and Juliet, among others. The essays divide equally among comedies, histories, and tragedies, with emphasis among the comedies on those notoriously difficult "clown" roles. A brief biographical note is provided for each of the contributors.
