Grief in Shakespeare

Some of the literary world’s best-known stories of loss and tortured grief are found in Shakespeare’s plays. Who better to delve into the subject than Andrew Hilton, founder of ‘Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory’. From the Comedies and Histories to the Tragedies and Romances, grief flows through Shakespeare’s finest work.

During this event Andrew joins a leading actor from his company, Saskia Portway, to explore Grief in Shakespeare, a Lewis Fry Memorial Lecture.

This session is hosted by Dr Lesel Dawson, of the University of Bristol, and takes the form of a pre-recorded discussion and Q&A.
