But whether they seek to recreate historical performance conditions or adapt Shakespeare's plays in terms of contemporary culture and politics, these theatre practitioners all make use of the kind of documents and artifacts held in libraries and archives. Using performance excerpts, both live and on film, our presenters will show how theatre libraries and special collections can enrich the continuing vitality of Shakespeare on the 21st century stage.
