After an historical survey ofA Midsummer Nights Dreamfrom Shakespeares time through to the 19th century, Jay Halio focuses primarily on 20th century productions and adaptations, for film and television as well as for the stage. Chapters are devoted to productions by Max Reinhardt, Peter Hall, Robert Lepage, and especially to Peter Brooks landmark production in 1970 and the reactions to it. Using a wealth of personal experience, as well as original promptbooks and critical reviews, Halio shows how differently but still very effectively the play may be staged, as the wide variety of plays he records. This second, enlarged edition contains three new chapters on Adrian Nobles RSC production and film, Michael Hoffmans film, and theDreamin China. Written in clear, jargon-free language, this is the only book so far in print that offers an extended study of major 20th-century productions of theDreamin their historical context.
