Episode 22: All’s Well that Ends Well in Halifax

Howdy listeners! This is a special episode of Bard Times. Yoli interviews Elizabeth Murphy, the co-founder and co-artistic director of Shakespeare by the Sea in Halifax about her current production of All’s Well That Ends Well. Interested in buying tickets? Here’s the link!

Talking Points: 

  • The relationship between the A-plot and B-plot
  • Medicine/Magic
  • Audience reactions to a challenging play
  • Doing Shakespeare outdoor vs indoors
  • Towards the end of the interview, Elizabeth suggests some fun summer reading: this article from the Globe and Mail about Shakespeare and gender imbalance in theatre, and this article in the New Yorker, by the esteemed Stephen Grenblatt, about the Merchant of Venice and xenophobia.
