From the Hamlet acted on a galleon off Africa to the countless outdoor productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream that now defy each English summer, Shakespeare and Amateur Performance explores the unsung achievements of those outside the theatrical profession who have been determined to do Shakespeare themselves. Based on extensive research in previously unexplored archives, this generously illustrated and lively work of theatre history enriches our understanding of how and why Shakespeare's plays have mattered to generations of rude mechanicals and aristocratic dilettantes alike: from the days of the Theatres Royal to those of the Little Theatre Movement, from the pioneering Winter's Tale performed in eighteenth-century Salisbury to the Merchant of Venice performed by Allied prisoners for their Nazi captors, and from the how-to book which transforms Mercutio into Yankee Doodle to the Napoleonic counterspy who used Richard III as a tool of surveillance.

Colaâ??s Furie (1646) by Henry Burkhead was published in Kilkenny during the Catholic Confederacy. A fascinating composite of history play and revenge tragedy, the drama allegorizes the events and leading figures of the Irish wars prior to the Ormond cessation of 1643. At the heart of the struggle between the noble Lirendians (the Confederate Irish) and the cruel Angoleans (the puritan New English) is the title character Sir Carola Cola, a representation of Sir Charles Coote Senior, a New English commander infamous for his brutality. Burkhead depicts Cola as a demonic figure whose vengeful â??furieâ?? becomes symbolic of the hidden dynamics of a corrupt authority.
