This event has been and gone.
After a sold out run during our inaugural Playhouse season, Eileen Atkins returns with her witty and intriguing insight into Shakespeare's women as first told by Ellen Terry. Terry was considered the greatest female Shakespearean performer in the 19th century. Her work on the playwright shines a light on Shakespeare's portrayal of feisty, troubled, down-trodden, complex, witty and triumphant women.
Atkins performs over ten parts including Juliet, Beatrice and Viola, and revisits the roles to shed fascinating new light on female characters who have sometimes been construed as dull, submissive or one-dimensional.
