Well, it has been a while since the last post!

This has to do with directing ‘As You Like It’ for Arkle Theatre Company, on in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe at the Royal Scots Club, and reviewing many Shakespeare-related shows during the Fringe.

Edinburgh Spotlight – news, reviews and ‘things-to-do’s in Edinburgh

For those reviews, here’s a search for ‘Shakespeare’ on www.edinburghspotlight.com – most of those reviews will be mine, but of course all are worth a gander.

A few of the best shows:

Titus Andronicus: an all-female production – an energetic and imaginative staging well-presented by The Smooth-Faced Gentlemen

Repertory Theatre – a would-be playwright gets caught up in a Hamlet-ian world on presenting his first play to the rep theatre artistic director who was ‘as a brother’ to his late father

You can also find the entertaining ‘Shit-Faced Shakespeare’, where one actor has deliberately become drunk for the performance.

What have you come across that is supposed to be by Shakespeare and isn’t? There’s an awful lot on Twitter too…

And remember – check for a source: if it’s Shakespeare, you will be able to find out where it is written.

Open Source Shakespeare is an excellent search resource, so use that and other search techniques to make sure you…
