From our May 2021 workshop, it’s the final session of Act 2, Scene 2, from Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
In this scene, Hamlet’s friends from school, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, have just arrived and the King and Queen ask them to find out what’s going on with Hamlet. A short while later, Hamlet enter reading and is greeted by Polonius before Ros and Guil join us.
We continue rolling out these episodes from the past 12+ months of workshops we’ve been doing, including Richard III, King Lear, Troilus and Cressida, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Julius Caesar, As You Like It, and King John and more. You get some of the popular plays and the lesser-known ones too. If you’ve missed any presentations thus far, click here to find them all.
These presentations are available on the podcast and YouTube, and you can find both below. While there is a video component, since so much emphasis is on the text, I believe it’s still an excellent experience with the audio version.
We’ve also done recent Facebook Live videos, including a Q&A with director Libby Appel, and then our new Acting the Role series with Geoffrey Wade and Reed Birney, where we focus on specific characters: Dogberry from Much Ado and Uncle Vanya from Chekhov’s play.
