Rehearsing the text
Concentrating on a scene from Twelfth night, John Barton guides members of the Royal Shakespeare Company in a discussion and reading of the lines in search of Shakespeare's clues to character, language, and staging. Barton and the actors demonstrate how verse itself is a clue to the meaning.
