Join the Globe’s Director of Education Professor Farah Karim-Cooper in conversation with actor and author Paterson Joseph in the intimate, candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

In this insightful evening, Paterson and Farah will discuss his career, journey and relationship with Shakespeare, casting and race; alongside sharing excerpts of selected stage texts and passages from Paterson’s books including his debut novel The Secret Diaries of Charles Ignatius Sancho, winner of the Royal Society of Literature’s Christopher Bland Prize.

Not only a prize-winning novelist and popular film and television actor, Paterson is one of the UK’s great Shakespeareans. He played Brutus in the high-profile, all-black British Shakespeare production of Julius Caesar set in Africa with the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2012. His acclaimed book, Julius Caesar and Me: Shakespeare’s African Play, reflects on this experience and more.
