Anti-Racist Shakespeare 2022

Anti-Racist Shakespeare is a series of free webinars that brings together scholars and artists of colour from a wide variety of backgrounds to examine Shakespeare’s plays through the lens of race and social justice.

We encourage everyone – audience members, theatre professionals, students, teachers and scholars – to add their critical voice by attending and asking questions.

Webinars as part of our Summer 2022 season will explore Much Ado About Nothing, Julius Caesar, Henry VIII and King Lear.
