James Anthony - Shakespeare's Sonnets Retold

Fri 9th November 2018
5.45pm - 6.45pm
Stratford Play House (formerly ArtsHouse)

Shakespeare’s sonnets are some of the nation’s favourite lines of verse, but difficult to really understand. The former Ford production line worker has rewritten the whole series using modern language, breathing new life into the original poems and opening them up for a modern readership, demystifying Shakespeare’s eternal poetry with provocative new translations and delightful new lines. "A dazzling success" Stephen Fry
