Sex, Violence and Poetry: A Portrait of Tina Packer
Program Description

A non-narrated portrait of Tina Packer, a highly acclaimed theatre director, actress, theatrical empire builder and mother. Over a period of seven years, Packer has built her Berkshires based troupe, Shakespeare and Company, from a $3,000 pipe dream to an over one million dollar a year operation that Helen Hayes calls a "national treasure". The program focuses on a month-long "total immersion" training workshop for theatre professionals that Packer and her staff lead every winter.
