Synopsis
The twenty-first in a weekly live stream project by Rob Myles to present all of Shakespeare’s plays in the order in which it is thought they were originally written. Using the Zoom video conferencing platform, it brings together many actors currently unable to travel and perform due to the Coronavirus crisis. The performance is introduced by Rachel Chung (University of Edinburgh) who explores how the play can be read in the light of queer theory and the importance of the forest in this interpretation.
