The Winters Tale

Judith Dunbar

Published by Manchester University Press

Shakespeare in Performance MUP

  • Explores how theatre artists have approached the play's most crucial theatrical and interpretive challenges The book's last chapter, by distinguished scholar of theatre and performance critic Carol Chillington Rutter, contributes a richly layered and highly engaging comparative analysis
  • Dunbar's analyses of twentieth-century productions of The Winter's Tale include an attention to representation of women's roles and to issues of gender and political power Performance is seen as a richly collaborative living art; Dunbar draws upon her original interview material (unavailable elsewhere) with directors, including Trevor Nunn and Peter Hall
