Shakespeare (Re)visioned: Drag King Richard III and Possession Macbeth

ByTerri Power

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This is a collection of two playtexts that appropriate Shakespeare's work to tell new stories and provide new meanings to his classics. Drag King Richard III is the story of a Female to Male transsexual, Laurie/Laurence, and his best friend. The play weaves playwright Terri Power's autobiographical writing with that of Shakespeare's Richard III. Possesion:Macbeth is based on the trial of the last three women convicted of practicing witchcraft in England. The playtext infuses actual court records, Shakespeare's Macbeth and Power's writing to give a searing account of female sexuality and autonomy.
