Harriet Walter on Shakespeare's Gender Politics

One of the top Shakespeareans of our age, Harriet Walter recently played Brutus, Henry IV and Prospero in an all-female trilogy at the Donmar Warehouse. Having already played the Bard’s key heroines, she talks about how she approached the male roles and what choices she had to make.

An event not just for lovers of Shakespeare but anyone who cares about the art of acting. Chaired by Jackie McGlone.
