Women of Will: The Overview,
Nov. 20: A combination of riveting scenes and trenchant analysis,

Women of Will: The Overview explores themes of love, loss, freedom,

Tina Packer traces the chronological evolution of Shakespeares female
characters and examines Shakespeares own journey and growth as a
writer.
Director Eric Tucker returns to
join forces with Packer and her acting mate, Nigel Gore, giving the trio
another opportunity to tackle Shakespeares canon. Packer and Gore have
starred opposite each other in several
productions, including Whos Afraid
of Virginia Woolf? (which netted Gore
an Elliot Norton Award for Best Actor
in 2010), Antony and Cleopatra, and
Hamlet.
The Overview is a comprehensive presentation of Shakespearean
scenes, insights, and discussion taken
from the full five-part series. It covers the full breadth of Shakespeares
works.
