To suit the Action to the Word, the Word to the Action

Archive for January, 2011

What’s going on at the moment?

Right now, the focus at DF Acting is on Shakespeare – building up articles on speaking his verse and related matters that arise.

For instance, the first article for your perusal is all about starting to work with iambic pentameter and an example for this uses the last two lines of Sonnet 18 (“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?”). This led to fascinating online findings for the sonnet and so a new article all about it, with multimedia links, came into being.

So, enjoy these goodies by viewing the Acting Shakespeare post:

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

Have fun!


Ask Shakespeare!

Incredibly exciting news here, so I’m mentioning it even before I can go into any detail about my own involvement – that’s how exciting this is!

On 2nd February 2011 (yes, next month) Shakespeare organisations, enthusiasts, scholars and professionals worldwide will join together on the AskShakespeare panel, ready to answer your Shakespeare questions.

Find out how this works at and check back for further information here.

O wonderful, wonderful, most wonderful wonderful, and yet again wonderful, and after that, out of all whooping!

Celia enjoying a spot of teasing anticipation-building in As You Like It (Act 3; Sc. 2), but I’m afraid I simply had to “speak apace”!
