The First Folio was compiled by John Heminges and Henry Condell, two of Shakespeare’s fellow actors. Without it, we would not have half of Shakespeare’s plays. Peter Garino, artistic director of The Shakespeare Project of Chicago, discusses the First Folio, its importance to our knowledge and understanding of Shakespeare, and how the Folio is used by actors to craft their performances. For Shakespeare aficionados or those who wish to broaden their understanding of Shakespeare.
