It explores the vibrant relationship between actors, directors and academics in their approachers to Jonson. In an effort to open the repertoire to the diversity of Jonson's work, attention is given to rehearsal methods, workshop practices, design, directing, marketing, marginalised theatre history, and all these are considered in the light of recent critical theory. The volume includes contributions from Joan Littlewood, Sam Mendes, John Nettles, Simon Russell Beale and Geoffrey Rush, Oscar-winning actor for Shine .
