Evelyn O'Malley on Shakespeare Link

After a brief summer break in August, the Cymbeline in the Anthropocene blog is back this month! This week, we are sharing an interview with our Willow Globe team member Evelyn O'Malley, conducted by actor Jamie Wilkes for Shakespeare Link UK. 

Tune in as Evelyn recounts her lifelong journey with ecological Shakespeare performance, from attending her first open-air Shakespeare play at age ten, through her extensive academic research and performance experience, to the potential of open-air performance for sustaining theatre creation during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Follow this link to donate to Shakespeare Link's ongoing online projects, and keep an eye out for Evelyn's first academic monograph, Weathering Shakespare: Audiences and Open-Air Performance, which will be available in January 2021 from Bloomsbury. Congratulations, Evelyn!
