A study of the ways in which contemporary playwrights and directors have made use of Shakespearian material for their own purposes, and how Shakespearian classics have served as the basis for a wide variety of literary extrapolations. Included are illustrations of the author's own work with Shakespeare and how "theatrical process" ranges from its root material and can still remain faithful to the spirit - if not always the letter - of the original works.

Jail Scholars! - Dab Hands - The Shakespearian Fallacies of John Barton - Brook's Shifting Point - Wrestling with Jan Kott - Seven American Misconceptions - Coriolanus Incorporated - Privatizing Julius Caesar - Julius Caesar freely adapted by Charles Marowitz
