Searching for Billy Shakespeare: Crista Mchugh
Das Hardcover Musikalbum Searching for William erscheint zur gleichnamigen Theaterproduktion in Dresden mit zwei CDs und einem aufwendig gestalteten Songbook mit allen Texten der Songs und der verwendeten Szenen in englischer und deutscher Sprache. Searching for William von Christian Friedel und seiner Band Woods of Birnam hatte im Dezember 2016 am Staatsschauspiel Dresden Premiere. Der Abend ist eine Mischung aus Konzert und Theater, Installation und Hörspiel auf den Spuren Shakespeares. Im Mittelpunkt steht die Experimentierfreude, altes Englisch mit moder ner Popmusik zu verbinden. Sänger und Schau spieler Christian Friedel widmet sich neben den Songs auch Monologen und Texten aus ver schiedenen Stücken Shakespeares. Hamlet und Macbeth kommen ebenso zu Wort wie Hexen, Geister und Narren aus der Welt des berühmten Theaterdichters. Ein Abend mit überraschenden Blicken und ungewöhnlichen Atmosphären.

Eine Lebensbeschreibung des berühmtesten Dichters der abendländischen Literatur aus der Feder eines der besten Shakespeare-Kenner der Gegenwart. Mit enormer Geschichtskenntnis und großem Scharfsinn entwirft Stephen Greenbltt ein überzeugendes Bild des großen Shakespeare in seiner Zeit.
Julius Caesar´s exciting plot, brilliant rhetoric, and searching characterisation have made it one of Shakespeare´s most popular plays with both readers and theatre-goers. Introducing this thoroughly reconsidered edition, Arthur Humphreys provides a fresh look at the play´s date and its place in the Shakespeare canon and examines Shakespeare´s transmutation of history into drama. He investigates the play´s ethical and moral concerns in a section on Roman values and analyses its fortunes in performance, from its immediately successful first staging to modern productions for cinema, television, and stage.

This collection of essays centres on Double Falsehood , Lewis Theobalds 1727 adaptation of the lost play of Cardenio, possibly co-authored by John Fletcher and William Shakespeare. In a departure from most scholarship to date, the contributors fold Double Falsehood back into the milieu for which it was created rather than searching for traces of Shakespeare in the text. Robert D. Humes knowledge of theatre history permits a fresh take on the forgery question as well as the Shakespeare authorship controversy. Diana Solomons understanding of eighteenth-century rape culture and Jean I. Marsdens command of contemporary adaptation practices both emphasise the plays immediate social and theatrical contexts. And, finally, Deborah C. Paynes familiarity with the eighteenth-century stage allows for a reconsideration of Double Falsehood as integral to a debate between Theobald, Alexander Pope, and John Gay over the future of the English drama. Deborah C. Payne is an Associate Professor of Literature at American University. She specializes in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century drama, theatre history, and performance theory. Her publications include Cultural Readings of Restoration and Eighteenth-Century English Theatre , co-edited with J. Douglas Canfield; The Cambridge Companion to English Restoration Theatre ; and Four Restoration Libertine Plays . Recently she completed The Commodiluxe Stage: A New History of Restoration Theatre, 1660-1700 .

Grower´s Market is set in remote marijuana country peopled with characters whose backgrounds are diverse and whose futures are uncertain. Sunbeam, who entered adult life as a 1960s San Francisco hippie girl, moved north searching for peace and quiet in unspoiled nature. Eventually she ended up running the Bird of Prey Tavern and growing enough weed to support her tranquil life. The men who eventually work for her - Shadow, Shrimp, Stones, Toon, and Shakespeare - are combat veterans searching for some of the same things Sunbeam found. A Vietnam vet named Case, a widower, is Sunbeam´s neighbor. Living on the top floor of the tavern is Rainbow, a runaway from Texas who tends bar and nurses her husband, a quadriplegic known as Uncle Sam. Shadow and Shrimp plan to take the money they´ve earned growing weed and open a restaurant. Shakespeare is hard at work on a novel about a hero named Superpenis, modeled after the cartoon character Plastic Man, and a New York publisher is interested. The heavily tattooed Toon sees himself as a living visual symbol of a world gone mad, and Stones has fallen in love with a virtual stranger at a homeless shelter. But now in the second decade of the 21st century, new people have arrived to claim space in the quiet valleys, next to the clear-flowing creeks, along the green mountainsides. They are large-scale growers, armed gangs, corrupt cops, and drug cartels, and violence and death come with them. Shadow, Shrimp, Shakespeare, Toon, and Stones must defend their turf against more heavily armed men who don´t mind declaring war to claim this marijuana country as their own. 1. Language: English.

Michel de Montaigne, one of the foremost writers of the French Renaissance and the originator of the genre of the essay, wrote on subjects ranging from friendship to imagination, from language to conscience. This collection includes 22 of Montaigne´s essays, including "Of Prognostications;" "Of the Custom of Wearing Clothes;" "Of Pedantry;" and "Of Friendship." Throughout Montaigne´s writing, he approaches his subject matter with rationality and skepticism, constantly searching for truth and inquiring into the nature of the human character. Montaigne´s essays have been widely read since their first publication by such great writers as Shakespeare and Ralph Waldo Emerson and continue to resonate for modern audiences. This edition is the translation by Charles Cotton. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Clive Chafer. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/001995de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.
