Just what is Unrehearsed Shakespeare anyway?

Well...“Unrehearsed Shakespeare” techniques are based on the theories of Patrick Tucker as published in his Secrets of Acting Shakespeare and strongly influenced by the work of the New England Shakespeare Festival. Students of the workshop will be active participants in learning and using the rules and guidelines of the technique to perform monologues and scenes.  In a nutshell, the theory goes that Shakespeare wrote into his text how it should be performed.  So by following the rules and guidelines of the text, the actors of the day could successfully perform a production with a scroll that only contained their characters lines, and two syllables of their cues.
