This thesis is an exploration of Shakespeare's original performance conditions and rehearsal techniques, including part-scripts, early modern staging, Original Pronunciation, and period costuming. It describes a production of Twelfth Night researched and put into practice with the Wellesley College Shakespeare Society in the fall of 2015, and what can be learned about the use of original practices with modern actors.
