Edinburgh University Press

The author discusses Barrymore’s performances onstage prior to his roles in performances of Shakespeare’s plays. The chapter discusses Barrymore’s work in plays such as Peter Ibbetson, The Fortune Hunter, Justice, and The Jest. The author shows how his pre-Bard experiences onstage enriched and fulfilled the performative imagination that emerged when Barrymore eventually tackled Shakespeare.
