Tina Packer – Shakespeare and Gender Workshop

After rehearsing Heisenberg for four weeks, the play opened and  on opening night, director Tina Packer saw her fine work appreciated by an enthusiastic audience. Many directors would catch their breath and take a break. However, Tina Packer is speaking on the relevance of Shakespeare in today’s troubled times with an  OLLI group at the Berkshire Museum on August 29. On August 31 to September 2nd she will present her workshop on Shakespeare and Gender at Shakespeare and Company. Then she will offer a Public Speaking Workshop on September 21-23, also at Shakespeare and Company.

Bob and I were fortunate to talk with Tina about the Shakespeare and Gender workshop while she was still working on Heisenberg. Given her wonderful book  and performances of Women of Will, Tina is the right person to be discussing issues of gender in Shakespeare’s work. As usual, she inspired us to think freshly about Shakespeare and contemporary gender issues.
