    Through panels and a hands-on workshop, scholars and practitioners will continue to explore the construction of Shakespeare’s characters. Panels will address playing Shakespeare’s female roles on contemporary stages as well as alternative, innovative approaches that rethink how character is created. The workshop will give audience members the opportunity to experience playing roles the way Shakespeare’s actors did—with only individual “cue scripts” that demand spontaneous response and action. Participants in the Symposium will include some of the most recognized and dynamic figures in their fields: Tina Packer (Shakespeare & Company), Meredith Anne Skura (Rice University), William B. Worthen (Barnard College), Tiffany Stern (Oxford University) and Diego Arciniegas (Boston Publick Theatre and Wellesley College). Image credit: courtesy of Mirko Ilic Corp
