Shakespeare Bulletin, a journal for the study of renaissance drama in
performance, published by the Johns Hopkins University Press, is pleased
to announce workshop titles for the RENAISSANCE DRAMA IN ACTION
conference, to be held November 8-12, 2006 on the University of Toronto
campus.
 
RENAISSANCE DRAMA IN ACTION will give scholars interested in performance
an opportunity to grapple with the practical realities of moving from
the page to the stage. Conference participants will sign up for a
rehearsal-and-performance workshop. Each workshop will focus on a
single scene from a play, one which exemplifies particular problems,
challenges, and/or rewards involved in staging renaissance drama.
