Description - Renaissance Drama in Action by Martin White
This work explores Restoration theatre practice and staging. It covers questions of contemporary playhouse design, verse and language, staging and rehearsal practices, and acting styles. The author relates the characteristics of Restoration theatre to the issues involved in staging the plays today and examines the history of the plays on the English stage from the 17th century to the present day. The book explores questions arising from reconstructions, with particular reference to the new Globe theatre, and includes discussion of plays such as "The Duchess of Malfi" and "Tis Pity She's a Whore" as well as lesser known play-texts. It includes interviews with, and draws on the work and experience of, modern theatre practitioners including Harriet Walter, Matthew Warchus, Trevor Nunn, Stephen Jeffreys, Adrian Noble and Helen Mirren.
