Aaron Kirkpatrick as Richard IIINow is the winter of our discontent…

IU Theatre’s 2012-13 season continues with Shakespeare’s Richard III. Director Gavin Cameron–Webb, who also helmed last season’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is opting for the motorcycle gang motif as a doorway into the world of Shakespeare’s play. Cameron-Webb explains, “I am not modernizing the story or attempting to paint a realistic portrait of a motorbike gangland war. The idea is strictly metaphorical - it is a way to illustrate the chaotic times of the 1480's.

“I am determined to prove a villain
And hate the idle pleasures of these days.”

Speakers:  Professor Linda Charnes, Department of English, and Professor Amy Cook, Department of Theater and Drama
Thursday, October 18, at 5:30 pm in the Studio Theatre

Professors Cook and Charnes will discuss with each other, and the audience, how Shakespeare stages this famous king, considering Shakespeare's uses of historical sources for his own Elizabethan aims, the challenges of staging the play, and how audiences are primed to respond to one of Shakespeare's most fascinating and controversial political characters, on the page and the stage.
