The Web of Our Life: Shakespeare and Family

Platform Conversation

Wed 20 April, 5.45pm
Running Time: 1 hour

Using the plays for inspiration, this series looks at how the work continues to tap in to everyday issues and key themes, with a leading NT actor and an expert in the field joining Genista McIntosh in conversation.

Actor Clare Higgins, who played the role of Gertrude in Hamlet in 2010 at the NT, is joined by novelist and critic Julie Myerson, to look at how family and gender is explored in Shakespeare’s play.
