What not to do with Shakespeare

Writing about web page

A marvellous list of things to avoid when staging Shakespeare:

"I will never attempt to cast Bottom as a woman, in order to make the scenes between Bottom and Titania "hotter."

You read this and can imagine some pretty awful interpretations. Funny how the fairies always seem to get the bad draw…

I hope the Complete Works season at the RSC avoids these pitfalls.
