Harry Ransom Center says
Professor James Loehlin and students from the Shakespeare at Winedale program at UT Austin will highlight the complexity of the Shakespearean text and the interpretive options it provides.

“Our access to Shakespearean texts is always mediated through print,” explains Leohlin. “We’re dependent on the early print versions, such as those in the Harry Ransom Center’s collection, and then we have to make our best guess from those. Performance invariably serves as a kind of interpreter of the text.” HEAR MORE FROM THE WINEDALE STUDENTS at http://budurl.com/evjj.

Working with scenes from the spring 2016 Winedale production, they demonstrate how language, stagecraft, interpretation, and audience reception combine to generate the range of powerful experiences Shakespeare's plays can yield.

Attendees may enter to win tickets to a Shakespeare at Winedale performance, a copy of James Loehlin's Henry V: Shakespeare in Performance, and a Shakespeare at Winedale t-shirt. The program is free and open to the public; donations are welcome. Seating in the Ransom Center’s Prothro Theater is first-come, first-served, and doors open at 3:30 p.m. This program is part of our current exhibition Shakespeare in Print and Performance.
