Shakespeare Squared Presents

 

UNREHEARSED SCENES FROM SHAKESPEARE

 

Shakespeare Squared are delighted to be working with Simon Purse, one of the UK’s experts on Shakespeare’s First Folio performance method.

 

Simon’s work is based on the theory that, in Shakespeare’s day, actors were not given a complete copy of the play but that they worked from Parts (a Cue Script).

With little time for rehearsal, preparation would mostly be private, and the performances would have come together in a spontaneous semi-improvised way.

 

Using these original Shakespearian working practices Simon will lead workshops with local actors and, after only five days, our brave performers will be equipped to present unrehearsed scenes from some Shakespeare’s best loved plays live to an audience.

 

Shakespeare Squared are excited to be using this time, between our large-scale productions, to be sharing new approaches to Shakespeare’s canon with Waterford performers and audiences.
