Details of Shakespeare Week:
Dates: 23 – 26 April 2018
Time: 6.30 – 8.30pm
Location: Eastern Gateway Building Atrium and Auditorium
Could the man we know as Shakespeare really be responsible for the 37 plays and 154 sonnets universally considered to be among the greatest ever written?
It is an enduring question, which has divided academics and enthusiasts for centuries. But is the ‘mystery’ rooted in any truth? Join us for a week of events that delve deeper into the authorship question while celebrating the very best of the Bard.
Throughout the week, Brunel will also be putting on display the Shakespeare Special Collection from our library, and elaborate costumes designed and made for Sir Mark’s play I am Shakespeare.
Monday 23 April – The Bard Debate: did Shakespeare really write the plays?
Tuesday 24 April – Shakespeare was a fake (…and I can prove it)
Wednesday 25 April – ‘I am Shakespeare’, presented by Sir Mark Rylance and Friends
Thursday 26 April – Brexit, Trump and The Bard’s Legacy: do Shakespeare’s plays still matter?
