Ours As We Play It: Australia Plays Shakespeare

Shakespeare’s plays are permeable to the contexts in which they are performed: they take on and speak to local concerns.Ours As We Play It takes a close look at several contemporary Australian productions of three Shakespeare plays: exploring masculinity and madness in Hamlet; the role of landscape and the multiple roles of Rosalind in As You Like It; and hierarchies of gender and social order re-imagined in relation to Australian understandings of power in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
