Public Shakespeare Talks: WOMEN AND SHAKESPEARE

Joe's Pub

Monday, July 22 at 7 pm

Running time: 90 minutes

Public Shakespeare Initiative

Shakespeare’s worlds have always been populated by remarkable, complicated women, as seen this summer at The Delacorte in the sharp-witted, righteous Beatrice and the political, persuasive Volumnia. 

Since the turn of the 20th century, from academia to theaters across the world, women have been testing the boundaries of sexuality, gender roles, performance styles, and production possibilities in Shakespeare. In doing so they have widened the range of opportunities, viewpoints, and challenges posed by his poems and plays.

Join the Public Shakespeare Initiative and a group of brilliant theater-makers and thinkers including Heidi Griffiths, Zainab Jah, Erika Lin, Erica Schmidt, Zenzi Williams, and Stephanie Ybarra for a lively, probing conversation about women and Shakespeare, on the page and in practice – the past as well as the future.
