Breaking Bard in Liverpool

Published: 21 February 2019

Liverpool Everyman Theatre will host a festival to celebrate all things Shakespeare from March 2 to 9.

The Brilliant Bard brings together key organisations from across the region to discuss and debate Shakespeare’s work, including Liverpool John Moores University, Edge Hill University, the University of Liverpool, Shakespeare North and the Everyman & Playhouse.

Each organisation will showcase the Bard’s work.

Classes and sessions will be available to book throughout the week, all based at the Everyman theatre. These include workshops for young children, talks with leading academics and sessions for school groups.

The festival opens with a Speaking Shakespeare session on March 2 encouraging young people to debunk the language of Shakespeare’s plays with Everyman & Playhouse associate director Nick Bagnall.
