Overview

Ours As We Play It: Australia plays Shakespeare by Kate Flaherty

"Shakespeare’s plays are permeable to the contexts in which they are performed: they take on and speak to local concerns. Early modern audiences would have experienced the humour and resonance of local identification with the plays just as we do, although the content of that identification in Australia today is uniquely our own. Ours As We Play It takes a close look at several contemporary Australian productions of three Shakespeare plays; exploring masculinity and madness in Hamlet, the role of landscape and the multiple roles of Rosalind in As You Like It, and hierarchies of gender and social order re-imagined in relation to Australian understandings of power in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
