Fearlessly impassioned acting that you'll remember for as long as you live."-- Wall Street Journal A tour de force, in-studio performance for Shakespeare lovers, scholars, artists and anyone who thinks the lady doth protest too much!

Together they bring listeners on a unique journey for the ears as they explore love, loss and power through Shakespeare's heroines, combining the most beloved Shakespeare scenes with fascinating analysis.

Tina Packer Through this unique performance, listeners will discover the mastery of Tina Packer (founder of the world-renowned Shakespeare & Company) hailed "marvelous!" by The New York Times and "irresistible" by the Associated Press.

Women of Will: Following the Feminine in Shakespeare's Plays Audiobook

Women of Will: Following the Feminine in Shakespeare's Plays

Author: Tina Packer Narrator: Nigel Gore, Tina Packer Release Date: April 2015

Women of Will, a narrative combining trenchant analysis and riveting scenes, explores the themes of love, loss, freedom, control, violence, and power through the heroines of Shakespeare’s text. Drawing on her knowledge as director, actor, and teacher, Packer traces the chronological evolution of Shakespeare’s female characters and examines Shakespeare’s own journey and growth as a writer from feckless misogynist in his youth to committed lover in his middle years to unrepentant feminist in his final years. Based on her five-part theatrical performance of the same name (currently touring throughout the world), Women of Will, combines the knowledge of performance, discussion, and debate with the dramatic tension stemming from the influences Shakespeare responded to in his life, and from Packer’s desire to show how powerful and distinct the women characters are in his plays. From Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing to Lady Macbeth to Paulina in A Winter’s Tale and everyone in between, Women of Will gives a unique and exhilarating perspective on some of the most well-known classical texts in the English language.
