Following on from directing the recent world premiere of ‘Shakespeare’s Women’ which starred Tamsin Greig, Samantha Spiro, Will Keen, and Victoria Yeate and sold out the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, Shakespeare’s Globe, raising 8K for the charity REFUGE, Jude Kelly and her special guests, Lorien Haynes, the multi award-winning actress, writer and producer who wrote ‘Shakespeare’s Women‘, together take us on a journey of exploration into some of the great female characters in The Bard’s works. Alongside Harry Anton best known for his work in The Crown and The Last Kingdom.

Who were the real-life inspirations behind these characters, what do they teach us about gender politics in 16th Century society, and how contemporary are the themes and challenges that these women faced? From Juliet to Desdemona, Portia to Ophelia, Lady M to Kate Shrew , Jude will demonstrate the huge emotional power and complexity these of these famous female roles.

This fascinating evening is more than just a presentation, it’s a conversation – indeed a provocation – by the founder of WOW Global to discuss how we can best shape the future of gender-equality by learning from the past.
