Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In 2019, Shakespeare’s Globe theatre in London ran a production of Richard II codirected by Lynette Linton and Adjoa Andoh (who also played the title role of Richard II) and featuring an all women of colour cast, both on the stage and in the production team. In this collaborative article, Delia Jarrett-Macauley introduces the production and places it in the context of historical engagement with Shakespeare by artists of colour. Varsha Panjwani contributes a set of curated conversations with Adjoa Andoh and actor Dona Croll (who played John of Gaunt in the production)recorded for the ‘Women and Shakespeare’ podcast, and Emer McHugh reviews a filmed version of the production subsequently made available on YouTube.
