Stagefighting: the blood is fake but the sweat is real

Think a stage fight is easy? Thing again. This clip from the Great River Shakespeare Festival documents just how much work goes into making swordplay look like child’s play.

This isn’t the first video attempt by GRSF to make Shakespeare more accessible to the masses. Click here for a charming retelling of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

    I’ve seen this production twice. Yes I am Shakespeare obsessed. The fight scene is very exciting, but as you might expect, it ends badly for one of the two. Prince Hal or Hotspur?

    Don’t miss it. The Great River Shakespeare Festival gives powerful performances.
