What do we think?

Two-time winner of the Laurence Olivier Award, acclaimed artist, author and director Sir Antony Sher contemplates one of his most seminal roles – that of King Lear in the RSC’s 2016 production – in conversation with Sir Jonathan Bate, provost of Worcester College, academic, writer and biographer. An incredible opportunity to hear two experts discuss Shakespeare, acting and writing, as they reflect on Sher’s 2016 diary, detailing his research and preparation for the iconic role of the Mad King. Theatre-goers and literature lovers alike should find this fascinating!
