    Synopsis: 

    A true tour de force of performance, discussion, and just a bit of crowd participation, Women of Will is the much-anticipated, masterful summation of Tina Packer's 40-odd years of deep investigation into all things Shakespeare.

    Packer and Shakespeare & Company favorite Nigel Gore, who have starred opposite each other in celebrated productions including Antony and Cleopatra and Hamlet, present a series of scenes from throughout Shakespeare's canon, providing insight into the chronological growth of Shakespeare's portrayal not only of female characters but of the qualities traditionally considered feminine. This comprehensive overview combines themes from the full, five-part opus, and covers the full breadth of Shakespeare's works.
