Shakespeare 1 – Staging the World
Written by internationally-acclaimed author and editor Jonathan Bate and the curator of Renaissance Europe at the British Museum, Dora Thornton, Shakespeare: staging the world provides a unique and fascinating insight into the early modern world, seen through the lens of Shakespeare’s plays.
The event will be chaired by Clemency Burton-Hill, and will be the first of three Shakespeare sessions.
