Description
In Playing Period Plays, Lyn Oxenford former professor at Guildhall School of Music & Drama, presents aspects of producing and acting period plays. Acting and mime exercises are included. Suggestions are given for practical presentation and for adaptation of the material for pageant and arena work. Part I covers Medieval and Early Tudor periods; Part II, Elizabethan and Jacobean periods (including Masques); Part III, Restoration and Georgian periods; and Part IV, Victorian and Edwardian periods. Each of the four periods are presented under six topics: The Spirit of the Plays, Movement in Costume, Occupations (the occupations and amusements of the period), Manners and Dances, Music and Practice Scenes. This illustrated book is essential for anyone interested in classical theatre.
