TERRE HAUTE, Ind., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Seven years ago Laura Bates walked into Wabash Valley Correctional Facility's segregated housing unit and began knocking on inmate's metal cell doors. "Hi. Would you like to read Shakespeare?" she asked. Those knocks by Indiana State University's associate professor of English led to a one-of-a-kind program. "We are the only Shakespeare program in the segregated unit in solitary confinement anywhere in the world," Bates said. "Never...

There's a glut of Shakespeare around at the moment, with two versions of Macbeth, Frantic Assembly's Othello, a burlesque children's take based on a Midsummer Night's Dream, and this take on The Taming of The Shrew. Not that we can ever have too much of the bard, or that's what I think, especially when we have traditional performances alongside hilarious, innovative, iconoclastic, free-flying stagings like this one. The Taming of The Shrew is one of Shakespeare's plays that can stand...

By MARION McMULLEN CHEERS! Actor William Beck fondly remembers sipping his first pint at the famous Dirty Duck in Stratford and is now toasting his debut with the Royal Shakespeare Company. "I keep running into people I know," he laughs. "Two of the ushers at the theatre are girls I used to go to school with so my feet are being kept firmly on the ground."

FOR some time I wondered what two extraordinary nuns, one clad in Dr Martens boots and chewing gum and the other occasionally applying lipstick, were doing in this quite bizarre production of Shakespeare's early and controversial comedy. They are mostly silent, sitting backstage observing the main action. I couldn't take my eyes off them and eventually realised that these travel magazine-reading, fancy bag-carrying nuns are in fact central to what director James Williams is attempting to...

By Tim Smith, The Baltimore Sun Jul. 26--In a year that saw a woman get remarkably close to a presidential nomination and a realistic chance at reaching the White House, it may be harder than usual to swallow the notion, expressed in the closing moments of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, that the female sex shouldn't "seek for rule, supremacy and sway, when they are bound to serve, love and obey." But there has long been a way to deal with viewpoints in this play that now give...

A doyenne of the local stage bows out with an alfresco production of one of the classics of musical theatre, writes Alan Cookman COLE Porter's sparkling musical comedy Kiss Me Kate is hardly a show which tugs at the heart strings. If there are moist eyes in the stalls, they can usually be blamed on tears of mirth. But when Stafford's Lookout! Theatre presents the show in the grounds of Bishton Hall later this month, the production is bound to have wistful undertones. Sadly, it will be...
