Free Speaker Event: Professor Thomas Bradac
Professor Bradac will discuss Actors, Audience and the First Folio!"
In 1623, seven years after Shakespeares death, members of his acting company compiled and published 36 of his plays into what is known as the First Folio. It is the closest document we have to what Shakespeare actually wrote and examines how the plays may have been spoken by his company. An essential tool for actors examining a character, the First Folio is a treasure trove of information for player and reader alike!
