Designing Shakespeare: an audio-visual database 1960-2000

Posted on 12/10/2011


All's Well That Ends Well, Nunn/Gunter, Royal Shakespeare Company, November 1981




This AHRB funded research project, which was first launched in 2003, makes audio-visual material freely available online to illustrate the performance history of Shakespeare. It focuses on the period 1960-2000, an era of great theatrical and social change, and it represents work from theatres in London and Stratford-upon- Avon. The database is widely used in lecture halls and classrooms in Britain, North America and Australia. It demonstrates the vast range of interpretative possibility for Shakespeare’s work on stage and is used extensively in teaching Shakespeare in performance in the Department by the project’s Principal Investigator Dr Christie Carson.

The Designing Shakespeare website is now housed on the Royal Holloway University of London servers.
