William Shakespeare’s work changed our theatre, language and even, some say, the perceptions we have of ourselves. His 154 sonnets published in 1609 document his passions, both intellectual and personal. They inform and merge with many of his plays. Using the sonnets as springboards into his creative and personal life, this new devised piece explores the theatre, acting, passions and politics of Shakespeare’s life.
Performed by final year actors from the Guildhall School, this production is directed by world-renowned voice coach and Shakespeare authority, Patsy Rodenburg (Head of Voice – Drama, Guildhall School).
Part of Shakespeare 400.
