Rogue Shakespeare: Scholarship and Stagecraft in an Ensemble-Based MFA Company

ByMelissa HugginsCharlene V. Smith

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Rogue Shakespeare was Mary Baldwin College’s 2013-14 Shakespeare and Performance MFA class. Twelve students embarked on a one-year journey to put scholarship into practice by collaboratively producing and performing in six early modern or early modern inspired theatrical works in a range of venues and in a variety of styles. Our home venue was the recreated Blackfriars Playhouse, benefiting from the college’s partnership with internationally acclaimed American Shakespeare Center and combining academic and applied aspects of Shakespearean theatrical studies. Our diverse interests and backgrounds coalesced into an ambitious “Season of Treason” which roguishly challenged textual authenticity, cultural gender norms, and modern Shakespearean theatrical practice. The twelve essays in this book collectively discuss and debate the processes and results of our one-year MFA theatre company.
