about

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, Roger Warren draws upon extensive theatrical experience of the plays in rehearsal and performance, particularly in two specialseasons: at Stratford, Ontario in 1986 and at the National Theatre in 1988 under the direction of Sir Peter Hall. This book breaks new ground by describing in detail how the rehearsal process focuses the principal theatrical issues of Shakespeare's late plays.

Editorial Reviews

'rich examples from other productions illuminate further possibilities: the plays open out on the page rather than close in, achieving what the best performance criticism aims at ... The chapter on Pericles, too, is a model of its kind, not only exploring the theatrical implications of textualscholarship but also demonstrating its genuine creative potential.'Christine Dymkowski, Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, Review of English Studies, Vol. 44, May 1993
