‘In thy faint slumbers I by thee have watch’d,
And heard thee murmur tales of iron wars;’

Synopsis


Join us as we mark 100 years since the end of the First World War with a day of events that question the imagined reality of war and the lived experience.

Does art have a place in discussing these experiences? Is Shakespeare accurate in his accounts of war and its effects on the collective and individual lives caught up in it? What was Shakespeare’s experience of war, and what is today’s? What can the real experience of war teach us about performing Shakespeare, and what can the performance of Shakespeare teach us about war and its effects?

Full programme for the day to be announced later in the year, including a collaboration with The Soldiers’ Arts Academy.
