Elizabethan Performances in North American Spaces

The SETC Theatre Symposium
March 28-30, 2003
Mary Baldwin College
Staunton, Virginia

The 2003 SETC Theatre Symposium will be held at Mary Baldwin College,
with the cooperation of Shenandoah Shakespeare Express, which has
recently opened their reproduction of the Blackfriar's Theatre.  The
conference will take advantage of this theatrically and historically
valuable site to address the ways that North Americans have presented
Elizabethan texts (which, broadly interpreted, includes Jacobean plays
as well) throughout history and the spaces in which they have chosen to
present them.

Topics explored may include:

*frontier presentations of Elizabethan/Jacobean drama
*20th century reconstructions of Elizabethan spaces
*adaptations of Elizabethan/Jacobean texts to North American theatrical
styles
*parodies of such texts
*the ways in which texts were changed to accommodate these spaces
*tensions between the culture of Elizabethan/Jacobean texts and North
American performance styles and spaces
*evaluations of the adaptability of North American theatres to
Elizabethan
plays.
*the development of Shakespeare Festivals in North America
*issues related to the production of such texts and those practitioners
who have developed distinct styles of producing such texts

Send paper abstracts by January 15, 2003 to:
