Performing Restoration Shakespeare2-6pm and 10-2pm
21 New Globe Walk
I will be working as a researcher on this exciting project which offers a unique opportunity for the public to engage with scholars, actors and musicians and learn more about the history of Shakespeare on stage.
When London theatres reopened in 1660, Shakespeare’s plays were performed not as found in the First Folio but in specially commissioned adaptions. Now rarely staged, Restoration versions of Shakespeare – with added music, song and scenic effects – were extremely popular with audiences.
In these open workshops, we will explore scenes from John Dryden and William Davenant’s adaptation of The Tempest, or The Enchanted Island, the most successful Shakespeare play in the Restoration era.
This event is part of 'Performing Restoration Shakespeare', a three year project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and led by Queen's University Belfast.
