Shakespeare Birthday Lecture 2014
2014 Birthday Lecture with Michael Bogdanov
25 April 2014
Join Michael Bogdanov as he talks to Paul Edmondson about his illustrious career directing Shakespeare which spans more than 40 years. During this time he has always tried to be cutting-edge, often controversial, and believes in performing Shakespeare in modern-dress. In his view this makes the plays more relevant to our own times and allows us to see ourselves in them more.
The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust was delighted when Michael Bogdanov deposited a wonderful cache of papers in our archive to sit alongside the archives of the RSC and to show how differently Shakespeare can be performed. Some of these items will be on display at the Institute before the lecture begins.
4pm - 5pm, The Shakespeare Institute
Tickets cost £10 and are available to purchase online or at any of the Shakespeare Houses.
