In celebration of William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday, join Fresh City Life and Shakespearean scholar Rachael Deagman for an exploration of space: the performance spaces that were the original stage for Shakespeare’s writing. We often think about William Shakespeare’s astonishingly rich and complex use of language and his clever experimentation with genre. But we should also remember that his plays were written to move from page to stage; that is to say, they were meant to be performed by embodied actors in a playing space.
