The Guerrilla Shakespeare Project and “Rules for Modernizing Shakespeare”

Here’s a great article on a thoroughly modern Shakespeare company, the Guerrilla Shakespeare Project. In the linked story, the Project’s Director of Development, outlines the group’s philosophy and guiding principles in bringing the Bard into the present day.

  • Indulge contemporary sensibilities
  • Take Shakespeare off the pedestal
  • Honor what makes Shakespeare “Shakespeare”
  • Acknowledge and exploit your limitations

Sounds like a group after my own heart…
