Shakespeare and Race

  21 – 23 AUGUST 2020          AT HOME

In its third year, our Shakespeare and Race festival goes digital and continues to question how the preoccupations of Shakespeare’s time collide with our own as we all work towards a more equal world. This year’s events will be online and are filmed in our candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. #ShakeRace
