Donald Monan, S.J., Professor in Theatre Arts Tina Packer, a renowned expert on Shakespeare, is the author of the forthcoming book, Women of Will (Knopf Doubleday, 2015) — the product of her lifelong exploration of Shakespeare’s famed yet misunderstood heroines. It is based on her five-part performance piece of the same name, which won critical acclaim in its off-Broadway run. Packer is an actor, writer, teacher and the founding artistic director of Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, one of the largest and most critically acclaimed Shakespeare Festivals in North America. From January 21 to 25 at Robsham Theater, Packer will direct “Honor, Shame, and Violence: A Shakespeare Anthology Project,” a compilation of war scenes from some of Shakespeare’s most beloved and lesser-known works. Her previous books are Power Plays: Shakespeare’s Lessons in Leadership & Management, co-written with John Whitney, and the award-winning children’s book, Tales from Shakespeare.
