Back in town. Went to see The Tempest at Bard on the Beach last night, in preparation for teaching it later this term. Enjoyable and fraught. Or enjoyable because fraught? Race issues neatly skirted through calculated casting. I’ve been watching the remakes and retakes too– a hilarious version from the 80s featuring John Cassavetes and Molly Ringwald and of course, Peter Greenaway’s Prospero’s Books. Derek Jarman made one too, which perhaps I’ll watch later tonight.
Working with the Play Chthonics committee to get the new season lined up.
Don’t forget to attend the 20th anniversary JC Redress conference if you’re in town.
