Elizabeth Schafer: Shrewing Around

Monday 15 January 2018

The Quarry Theatre, 26 St Peters Street, Bedford MK40 2NN


When does a production of a Shakespeare play cross over into adaptation?

Focussing on the perennially popular The Taming of the Shrew, Elizabeth Schafer will examine the production / adaptation / appropriation continuum and how Shakespeare’s play has been reconfigured in recent years.

The author of MsDirecting Shakespeare and a performance history of The Taming of the Shrew, Elizabeth Schafer will examine how even the smallest of cuts – or additions – can make a radical difference to the shrew, her tamer and her taming.
