This book, which explores the full extent of Shakespeare performances in England over the past decade, invites a broad readership of playgoers and students. As a regular theater reviewer, Holland has examined the variety, the strengths and the problems of English productions and companies. They are charted chronologically here, and compared with productions elsewhere. Peter Holland's reviews are individually thoughtful, provocative and illuminating; cumulatively they show that there is no one English Shakespeare style but a rich and often bewildering variety.Read more
