I am a writer and educator in Drama and Theatre Studies. My specialist areas are Shakespeare (particularly with regard to the female characters), dramaturgy, directing, performance analysis, and theatre history. My PhD is from the Drama department of Trinity College Dublin, so Irish things will sometimes feature here, too. Raising a little boy also gives me plenty of cause to reflect on parenting and social justice issues.
This blog will be where I write about Shakespeare and all manner of theatre-related things.
I may also bring in some of my writing on other topics. The pieces on social justice, feminism and popular culture will usually be cross-posted at Hoyden About Town, where I blog under the handle Orlando. If I am writing on Shakespeare, directing or teaching drama it may just be posted here.
You can also check out my book Shakespeare and the Shrew at the Palgrave Macmillan website, in their Shakespeare Studies series.
