About this book


Using themed performance reviews and extensive interviews with theatre professionals, this book explores how Shakespeare's 'cultural capital' has been evoked in the reinvention of a post-communist nation against a backdrop of political tensions surrounding the ascendance of Central and Eastern Europe to the European Union.
