What Reviewers Are Saying
'Its activities generate a sense not only of the richness and diversity of the play as a socio-historical text but also of it as a cultural and contemporary phenomenon. At the same time, the approach seems to highlight a collaborative teaching and learning discourse...A resource you will be more than happy to have on your departmental shelves.'
