Our very own Librarian and engaging story teller, Anna Moraitis has agreed to share “Ten facts you didn't know about Shakespeare and his Theater”. How was Shakespeare performed differently from our times and how did this impact his play? Plays performed in daylight, Juliet played by a boy actor, a dialogue with the audience, ‘improv’ acting, acting direction from the script itself, vulgarity and poetry within the same line, censorship and disguise. Sounds mad?
Prepare to be surprised and intrigued by joining her on this journey through the Elizabethan theater world, focusing on Shakespeare. She promises: “It will open your eyes to Shakespeare's plays and shed new light on his cryptic language.”
