Shakespearean Theorists to Speak at Eastern

Written by Jack Meltzer


  John Hudson.JPG            Willimantic, CT-  John Hudson, author and artistic director for the experimental New York-based Shakespeare company Dark Lady Players, will speak on Nov.  11 at Eastern Connecticut State University.  The address begins at 3 p.m. in the Student Center Theatre.  The public is invited.  Admission is free.

            The authorship and identity of Shakespeare's plays and works has been a subject of debate for a long time.  Hudson will discuss theories about who might have authored these classic plays.

        The Dark Lady Players aims to re-invent established performance practices in the theater industry. It helps teams, theatrical and otherwise, become more creative and open to inquiry; better able to generate new ideas; and able to re-invent old narratives with new dramatic techniques.

            Hudson has adapted "As You Like It" into an allegorical production presented in New York City, and  is currently working on Amelia Bassano Lanier's biography, "The Dark Lady: The Woman Who Wrote Shakespeare."  He also is the author of a biweekly column on Shakespearean scholarship and dramaturgy, which appears in the Clyde Fitch Report.  Hudson has a Master of Arts in Shakespeare and Theatre from the Shakespeare Institute at the University of Birmingham in England  and a bachelor's degree from the University of Exeter.
