Staging Shakespeare's Late Plays

Roger Warren


Shakespeare's late plays – Pericles, Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale, and The Tempest – have provoked a great deal of interest in the modern theatre. In this book, the author draws upon extensive theatrical experience of the plays in rehearsal and performance, particularly in two special seasons: at Stratford, Ontario in 1986 and at the National Theatre in 1988 under the direction of Sir Peter Hall. This book describes in detail how the rehearsal process focuses the principal theatrical issues of Shakespeare's late plays.

Keywords: Shakespeare, Pericles, Cymbeline, The Tempest, Ontario, National Theatre, Peter Hall, rehearsal
