Shakespeare on Toast – Public Talk

This is less of a talk and more of a performance. Ben Crystal makes sense of Shakespeare by putting him back into context. This includes an exploration of Elizabethan theatre and what a trip to a Shakespeare play in 1600 would be like, a master-class on the poetry style Shakespeare wrote in, and a look at Original Pronunciation (the accent Shakespeare would have spoken in).

This is relevant for all ages – younger people experiencing the Bard for the first time through to older audience members who love Shakespeare and want to learn something new.
