Directors All Do It: Cutting Shakespeare

Four hundred years after the First Folio was printed, new productions of Shakespeare's plays come to life around the world, each with unique textual variations. Everything old is new again when a director tackles one of Shakespeare’s works with a pair of scissors in hand. Love's Labour's Lost director Peter Pasyk and legendary stage manager Nora Polley take a look at how and why we cut and edit the Bard’s work, and the impact it has on stage.
