Beyond the Stage is the Illinois Shakespeare Festival’s running article series on the dramaturgy of the productions in the current season. These articles explore the plays from a wide range of perspectives, from history and literary criticism on the original works to interviews with directors and creative teams. Some articles will be specific to one of the productions while others will highlight connecting threads among all of them. We hope that these articles will inform and enrich your experience at the Festival!
If you have questions or comments regarding dramaturgy, please email Kee-Yoon Nahm, festival dramaturg, at email@example.com.
