What did Shakespeare’s accent—and that of his actors and audience—sound like? What can we learn from hearing and speaking his works in that accent? And with no recordings or transcriptions available to us, how do we know?

Actor, author, & producer Ben Crystal (Shakespeare’s Words, Shakespeare on Toast) with a Maori actor explores the fascinating 400 year old sound of Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets. And for the first time ever, with a Kiwi twist, showing a world hidden beneath our readings in modern English accents full of rhyme, rhythm, and a very subtle humour.

Bookings essential for numbers (max 95).
