Open-Air Shakespeare: Under Australian Skies (Global Shakespeares) (Hardcover)
Many people today first encounter staged Shakespeare in an open-air setting. This book traces the history of open-air Shakespeares in Australia to investigate why the anomaly of adapting 400-year old plays under Australian skies exerts such a strong appeal.
