MEDIA REVIEWS
"I feel honored to be asked to comment on this splendid and absorbing book. [It] is an invaluable reference book for fight directors and all those involved in staging exhibitions of historical swordplay. I recommend it wholeheartedly." --Patrick Crean, Fight Master of the Stratford, Ontario, Shakespeare Festival

Patrick Crean, Fight Master of the Stratford, Ontario, Shakespeare Festival"


" Methods and Practice of Elizabethan Swordplay" is written by two movement-oriented actors who analyze the writings and teachings of three Elizabethan fencing masters, arguing that by knowing what Elizabethans were being taught in fencing classes, we can make the leap that this is what Shakespeare s actors did on stage. [The] authors share a love of theatre, combined with professional experience as both actors and stage combat choreographers. . . . "Methods and Practice of Elizabethan Swordplay" is a must for a stage combat choreographer, for a Shakespeare study program, or for an English drama teacher who can fence. . . . I heartily recommend that [this book] be added to any Shakespeare collection. "Theatre Journal"
