Fiona Shaw on Katherine

Performing Shakespeare

By Fiona Shaw and Julian Curry

Ebook £3.99£3.19

Fiona Shaw discusses playing Katherine in Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, in this ebook taken from Shakespeare On Stage: Volume 2 - Twelve Leading Actors on Twelve Key Roles.

In each volume of the Shakespeare On Stage series, a leading actor takes us behind the scenes of a landmark Shakespearean production, recreating in detail their memorable performance in a major role. They lead us through the choices they made in rehearsal, and how the character works in performance, shedding new light on some of the most challenging roles in the canon. The result is a series of individual masterclasses that will be invaluable for other actors and directors, as well as students of Shakespeare – and fascinating for audiences of the plays.

In this volume, Fiona Shaw discusses playing the role of Katherine in Jonathan Miller's 1987 production of The Taming of the Shrew for the Royal Shakespeare Company.

This interview, together with the others in the series (with actors such as Ian McKellen, Simon Russell Beale, Patrick Stewart and Harriet Walter), is also available in the collection Shakespeare On Stage: Volume 2 - Twelve Leading Actors on Twelve Key Roles by Julian Curry, with a foreword by Nicholas Hytner.
