Staging Shakespearian Dissent
Plays that provoke, protest and slip by the censors



April 2016 | SAGE Publications Ltd

Historian Tom Holland, actor Simon Callow, Brazil's controversial director Roberto Alvim and Bollywood's Aparna Sen all talk Shakespeare, protest and dissent in the latest issue of Index on Censorship.

The magazine takes a look at how staging Shakespeare has allowed directors to tackle issues that would have otherwise been censored in countries around the world. Also John McNamara, scriptwriter for new film Trumbo, talks about what Hollywood will and won't screen today.

Plus Argentina 40 years after the coup and interviews with singers Ramy Essam and Fermin Muguruza.
