From our January 2021 workshop, it’s the final session of Act 3, Scene 2, from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
We continue rolling out these episodes from the past 12+ months of workshops we’ve been doing. If you’ve missed any presentations thus far, click here to find them all.
Past guest Anne Gee Byrd joins us for another workshop presentation, playing the role of Helena – a role she’s played twice before and did not expect to tackle again, yet she is so brilliant and hilarious!
This group explored the lover’s quarrel scene (typically one that is very physical) and focused quite heavily on using the text to attack one another. They worked for three weeks leading up to this presentation. Enjoy this fascinating peak behind the scenes of a rehearsal!
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.
Enjoy the audio version of the A Midsummer Night’s Dream presentation of Act 3, Scene 2:
