Comment: Re: SHK 13.0405 RSC Winter's Tale Production Casebook
Once again, I am pleased to read an insightful, intelligent and
pleasantly written post by Karen Peterson. Having not seen The 1997
Winter's Tale or the Casebook myself, I now understand exactly what both
set about to achieve.
What useful things these casebooks are. They remind us what it means to
explore a play and to come to decisions in the playmaking process. If
you take the casebook and "Looking for Richard" for what they are, you
realize they can be invaluable tools: for classrooms, for Shakespeare
neophytes, those new to the play, or to those who simply enjoy exploring
a play they know or a production of that play that they might have seen.
Once again, Karen, thanks. I'm sure that if you had not enjoyed the play
or the casebook, you would have written about their deficiencies in an
equally incisive and pleasant manner.
