Lady MacBeth kill herself? Please. And Portia ? you don?t think someone that intelligent would be a little pissed at being bait, and trophy?
Soliloquies: the lady doth indeed protest is a collection of soliloquies by Ophelia, Lady MacBeth, Regan, Portia, Desdemona, Kate, Isabella, Juliet, Marina, and Miranda ? protesting the role given to them by Shakespeare.
Exquisite poetry. Fresh new audition pieces.
?...not only dynamic, imaginative verse writing, but extremely intelligent and intuitive insight ... I know many actresses who would love to get their hands on this material!
As a Shakespeare director, I?m thrilled by the perspective which Chris? pieces provide of the plays and characters which they challenge ? I believe these will be sought after by theatre companies which also do solid classical work, as new material for their audiences, embraced by a season of Shakespeare plays.
As a feminist, I?m excited by how these characters come alive and point up the perceptions and misperceptions that have shaped their literary and theatrical destinies.
As a dramaturg, I?m more than pleased to find modern playwrights who can write in heightened language and/or verse.? Joanne Zipay, Judith Shakespeare Company, NYC
