Description

Shakespeare Week

Brexit, Trump and The Bard’s legacy: do Shakespeare’s plays still matter?

They appear on school curriculums across the world, and so many lines have made their way into common parlance – but why should we still care about Shakespeare?

That’s the question that Brunel Professors William Leahy and Tom Betteridge will argue over – and they’ll be asking the audience to join the discussion.

So, can we see shadows of Richard III in Donald Trump? Would The Bard have baulked at Brexiteers? Join us for a lively look at Shakespeare’s legacy.

Doors open from 6pm, with drinks and nibbles available following the lecture.
