REVIEWING SHAKESPEAREAN THEATRE: THE STATE OF THE ART
CONFERENCE: 5 AND 6 SEPTEMBER 2009, STRATFORD UPON AVON

Join a gathering of distinguished international speakers from the world of the theatre, media and academia to explore what happens when we review a production of a Shakespeare play. The conference combines short paper sessions and seminars, and includes an opportunity to 'review' the RSC's production of As You Like It. This weekend is a chance for dialogue and collaboration between directors, journalists, students, actors, educators, and the Shakespeare enthusiast. Speakers include: theatre reviewer Michael Billington (The Guardian), Andrew Dickson (The Guardian), Shakespeare specialist Peter Holland (University of Notre Dame), Shakespeare Survey theatre reviewer Carol Rutter (University of Warwick), and Janet Suzman (actor and director). Contributions are invited for a subsequent publication (Shakespeare: Journal of the British Shakespeare Association) and are welcome even if you are unable to attend the conference in person.
