OK Medievalist folks (Dr. V?), here's your chance to save my week. I'm teaching 2nd Shepherd's Play on Friday and Monday--I've read all my textbook materials, done a little theatre history research, brushed up on a couple of the other cycle plays to compare. But still, I'm feeling a little out of my element.
What do I need to remember to tell them that their textbook won't? What are some good ways to teach the play in interactive ways?
And finally: How did they stage the sheep?
