Explore the ways in which theatre artists engage with questions of race, identity and politics as they stage Shakespeare in the 21st Century. How should artists engage creatively with these iconic plays when some feel they should be ‘cancelled’, while others insist they should be kept from change? Are contemporary theatre makers allowed to approach Shakespeare in imaginative ways during this time of culture war?
Guests include actor and director Iqbal Khan, Cameron Knight (film and theatre actor and Head of Acting at Rutgers Conservatory), actor Akiya Henry (Much Ado About Nothing, RSC 2021) and director Abigail Graham (The Merchant of Venice, Shakespeare’s Globe 2021).
