From The Romans To The Normans On The English Renaissance Stage, Lisa Hopkins Nov 2017

From The Romans To The Normans On The English Renaissance Stage, Lisa Hopkins

Early Drama, Art, and Music

This book examines the late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century engagement with a crucial part of Britain's past, the period between the withdrawal of the Roman legions and the Norman Conquest. This was a period that saw both Arthur and Alfred, as well as Hengist, Horsa, and Canute. The country was converted to Christianity and saw successive waves of invasions by Angles, Jutes, and Danes, which left both a mark on the language and a record in the physical landscape. By its end, the British Isles had been transformed beyond recognition, and yet a number of early modern plays suggest ...

Romeo & Juliet, Rebecca M. Baker, Robert Clements, Tim Phipps Mar 2006

Romeo & Juliet, Rebecca M. Baker, Robert Clements, Tim Phipps

Theatre Productions

Using the timelessness of this classic, Baker has set the play in Miami in the 1930’s. She reasons that this setting will celebrate the power of the play, as well as enhance the youthful feel for the audience. Along with using a relatively more modern setting all the while maintaining the Shakespearean structure, the script contains slight adjustments in language to help the audience better understand the plot of the story.
