About this item

Scholars of drama and theater history profile the careers of four actors encompassing almost a century of theatrical experience, from John Gielgud's childhood before the First World War to Judi Dench's performances in the first decades of the new millennium. They show how these two, plus Laurence Olivier and Peggy Ashcroft--especially when they returned to new productions of plays that they had previously performed in--afford insights into changing approaches to the actor's craft, the aims and methods of the theater, the institutions presenting productions, and to Shakespeare's plays themselves.
