    Abstract:
    "Mobile Shakespeare Scripts" (MyShx) will develop and test in rehearsal a dynamic script interface for theater practitioners: professionals, academics, and amateurs. MyShx prototypes a core component of Cambridge World Shakespeare Online, a collaborative workspace for scholars, teachers, students and performers worldwide. It seeks to validate within a defined user community the dual publishing model for this workspace, which balances sustainability with open access to primary and secondary materials. Cambridge University Press and the University of Southern California will support the design of a lightweight prototype on a portable device. The American Shakespeare Center will partner on the project, testing the usefulness of a dynamic script over the lifecycle of a play in production. Our partners will collaborate on a public report sharing the results and prototype design. In addition to public reports on the results, the prototype will be made available on open access through CWSO.
    Notes:
    The creation and testing of a prototype dynamic script interface for theater professionals, humanities scholars, and students to allow for the study of a lifecycle of theatrical performance as it moves from play to script to production.
