'There is the playhouse now; there you must sit'

Shakespeare and Us 

What exactly was the relationship between Shakespeare and his original theatrical and literary audiences? How did he envision his relationship with future generations of audiences? In this lecture, Professor Grace Ioppolo (University of Reading) will look at Shakespeare’s relationship with us through the use of playhouses, actors and texts from his own time to ours.

This lecture will be illustrated by a Globe actor.
