Grief in Shakespeare

Some of the literary world’s best-known stories of loss and tortured grief are found in Shakespeare’s plays. Who better to delve into the subject than Andrew Hilton, founder of ‘Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory’. From the Comedies and Histories to the Tragedies and Romances, grief flows through Shakespeare’s finest work.

Join Andrew and a leading actor from his company, Saskia Portway, to explore Grief in Shakespeare, a Lewis Fry Memorial Lecture.

This session will be hosted by Dr Lesel Dawson, of the University of Bristol, and will take the form of a pre-recorded discussion followed by a live Q&A.

All Good Grief online events are free to attend.
