Unabridged: Shakespeare in The Stacks with Ayanna Thompson (Episode 3)

We’re back with another installment of The Stacks Pack exclusive show, The Stacks: Unabridged. Today we are finally talking all things Shakespeare with scholar, author, and dramaturg, Ayanna Thompson. Ayanna’s work focuses on Shakespeare, race, and performance, and she is the author of many books including Blackface and Passing Strange: Shakespeare, Race, and Contemporary America. She shares with us why some plays are her favorite to teach but not to see, which adaptations are particularly good, and the Shakespeare plays she thinks we should be teaching. We also talk about Traci’s favorites after her 37 month read through of all of Shakespeare’s plays.
