SHAKESPEARE: THE MAN FROM STRATFORD
The New Theatre
Wednesday 15 – Saturday 18 September
Saturday Matinee 2.30pm
By Jonathan Bate
Starring Simon Callow
“Shakespeare is the greatest writer the world has ever known. But we know nothing about him. Or do we? In a magical tour-de-force, Simon Callow, one of Britain’s greatest actors, tracks down the real William Shakespeare, bringing to life both the man and the unforgettable characters – lovers, kings, soldiers and clowns – who have since conquered the world’s stages.
Following the worldwide success of The Mystery of Charles Dickens (West End / Broadway) and hot on the heels of his sell-out hit Dr Marigold & Mr Chops, Callow joins forces with Jonathan Bate, pre-eminent Shakespeare biographer and editor of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Shakespeare: The Complete Works, to fill the stage with Shakespeare’s real and imagined worlds. A theatrical event not to be missed.” New Theatre Website
