BUCK (1913), divorced =lady salesman= Emma McChesney longs for life off the road. In both women—our ancestors—we see ourselves.

It is especially popular during March, Women's History Month. =I wish you could come into every literature classroom, perform at every library, be on the stage in a theater in every town, helping people connect with that wonderful literature, teaching people to listen to the sounds of wonderful sentences.

DiLorenzo, Kris SHAKESPEARE’S WOMEN: THEY’RE NOT WHO YOU THINK THEY ARE! Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
Juliet’s a romantic teenager, Lady Macbeth’s an evil conniver, Kate’s an untameable shrew─ wrong! Shakespeare never paints a one-dimensional portrait. There’s much more to these and other females like Queen Margaret, Hermione, and Tamara, than meets the eye─ and you may be very surprised by what they’re really like. The clues to their personalities are in Will's original scripts. Actress Kris Dean performs Shakespeare’s women the way he wrote them, not the way we’re used to seeing them. You'll never look at them the same way again! Kris trained at the Royal National Theatre Studio in London, studied with Royal Shakespeare Company members, and was a master student of director Patrick Tucker, London’s Original Shakespeare Company founder. She has played many classical roles on the New York stage and appeared in Provincetown and Boston, as well as in her own one-woman show. Kris is a member of SAG and AFTRA
