Stagescreen productions
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Staging any Shakespeare play requires specific choices about how to handle 400-year-old material. However, The Taming of the Shrew, like a handful of others in the Bard's body of work, carries extra baggage. It is especially fascinating to watch high school and college-age performers work on the play - to see how they tackle issues of male dominance and female independence, if at all. This program records just such a process, highlighting the rehearsal and performance of Act IV, Scene 3, at London's Globe Theatre. Afterwards, the players discuss the scene and their attitudes toward it.
