This collection stages the debates between theory and practice that have transformed our understanding of Shakespeare in performance in recent years. Drawing upon textual theory, materialist cultural criticism, new historicism, feminism, postcolonialism, and psychoanalysis, the essays address Shakespeare's plays as texts in and for performance in a variety of contexts, ranging from the Renaissance to the present. The collection not only offers readers new ways of thinking about Shakespeare in the theatre, but also highlights the practical and theoretical potential of performance itself as a means of redefining Shakespeare in contemporary culture.
