Is razor-sharp wit a true defence against love? 

 

It’s festival time in Hyde Park – a place for amorous intrigue, unexpected encounters, and transformations of fortune.  Three women, setting their own rules, make life-defining choices – and teach the men who pursue them a lesson in the process. 

 

In a play where Hollywood screwball comedy meets Much Ado About Nothing, James Shirley’s brilliantly funny 1632 comedy is moved to vibrant modern London, where, during one momentous day in Hyde Park, the characters’ lives will change forever.

Late Tudor and Stuart Drama:

Gender, Performance, and Material Culture

 

Series editors: Cristina León Alfar, Hunter College, CUNY, and Helen Ostovich, McMaster University

 

Publisher: MIP University Press at Kalamazoo (https://mip-archumanitiespress.org/series/mip/)

 

This series provides a forum for monographs and essay collections that investigate the material culture, broadly conceived, of theatre and performance in England from the late Tudor to the pre-Restoration Stuart periods (c. 1550–1650).  The editors invite proposals for book-length studies engaging in the material vitality of the dramatic text, political culture, theatre and performance history, theatrical design, performance spaces, gendering court entertainments, child- and adult-actors, music, dance, and audiences in London and on tour. We are also interested in the discursive production of gender, sex, and race in early modern England in relation to material historical, social, cultural, and political structures; changes to and effects of law; monarchy and the republic in dramatic texts; theatre and performance, including performance spaces that are not in theatres.  Further topics might include the production and consumption of things and ideas; costumes, props, theatre records and accounts, gendering of spaces and geographies (court, tavern, street, and household, rural or urban), cross-dressing, military or naval excursions, gendered pastimes, games, behaviours, rituals, fashions, and encounters with the exotic, the non-European, the disabled, and the demonic and their reflection in text and performance.

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 27.208  Tuesday, 7 June 2016

Subject:     Explanation

 

Dear Subscribers,

 

The surgery I had several weeks ago was the most complex one I have ever had on my foot/leg and the most painful one I have ever experienced. When the dressings came off for the first time, there was a significant problem that needed to be taken care of. We tried one method first, and then it became clear that the only course was to have another surgery as soon as possible. That one was on Tuesday after Memorial Day. It was not as complex, but involved one long incision among other things and thus great pain. Yesterday was the first day I could sit in a chair for a while without having my foot elevated. First, I did my finances because they were a mess; and when I was ready to turn to editing SHAKSPER, I had to leave for dinner and a celebration of my son-in-law’s fortieth birthday. 

 

I turn to the submissions now, but late Thursday evening, I leave for a week in Devon at Sharpham House, where the Wi-Fi is spotty as best. I don’t think I will be able to edit SHAKSPER but who knows. 

 

I am sorry for all these interruptions; I did not anticipate them.

 

If anyone wishes me well, there is no need to do so in an e-mail—I have enough to do as it is, and I simply acknowledge your good wishes before hand.

 

Hardy m. Cook

Editor of SHAKSPER
