Time & Location
About The Event
The year is 1613, and Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But disaster strikes when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground. Devastated, Shakespeare returns to Stratford, where he must face a troubled past and a neglected family. Haunted by the death of his only son, Hamnet, he struggles to mend the broken relationship with his wife and daughters. In so doing, he is ruthlessly forced to examine his own failings as a husband and father.
Those with a keen interest in the life of Shakespeare, from behind the pages, may find some wealth of knowledge in Branagh’s take on the playwright. Written by Ben Elton, the script features a sharp and satirical take on the life of the Bard—which may prove to be accessible for those currently studying his great works, too.
