Summary These intensive acting workshops conducted by John Barton of the Royal Shakespeare Company demonstrate how the Company makes Shakespeare's classic plays accessible to modern audiences without compromising the text's integrity. Irony and ambiguity: How do actors identify ironic dialogue? How do they use it to reveal character? And how do they communicate it to the audience? Passion and coolness: In many instances, Shakespeare expressed overflowing emotion and profound thought in the very same speech. How do actors balance the heart and the intellect?
