Michael Pennington: Sweet William
Venue: Acorn Theatre
Michael Pennington, acclaimed British actor, director, writer and co-founder of the English Shakespeare Company, will be guiding us through Shakespeare’s life and plays, with a mixture of his own opinions and performances of many well-known and less familiar Shakespearean speeches.
This is a special new adaption of a longer show, which impressed critics last year:
‘In his brilliant one man show Michael Pennington combines his performance skills with textual scholarship to give us as well-rounded a portrait of Shakespeare as you could hope for.’ The Guardian
‘A fascinating chronicle of the world through which Shakespeare walked.’ Chicago Sun Times
‘The incomparable Michael Pennington has done Sweet William proud.’ Daily Mail
Please note: as the Cabaret Bar is being used for our Stanza event, a small bar will be available in the Theatre Entrance Lobby. However, hot drinks will unfortunately not be available on this occasion.
