Students and professional actors recently performed Samuel Daniel’s 1594 play Tragedie of Cleopatra, aiming to shed light on female participation in drama in Shakespeare’s time and on early modern ideas of female heroism. Professor Helen Hackett and Yasmin Arshard will discuss the challenges and pleasures of staging the play and the insights gained, illustrated by live performances by the actors and by the DVD of the production.
