Join us for an evening with renown actor and author Oliver Ford Davies on Thursday, June 15th, as we explore: Exactly how obsessed was Shakespeare with the relationship between father and daughter…?
Judging by his complete works, where it is explored in every shade and more than 20 unique relationships, from Titus Andronicus to The Tempest, it was an obsession that played out again and again in his stories. But why?
In this exclusive event, Oliver Ford Davies talks to Dr Abigail Rokison-Woodall, of The Shakespeare Institute, about his new book Shakespeare's Fathers and Daughters in what promisses to be a frank and lively discussion of fathers and daughters in the Bard’s writing, relating it to the little we know of his own two daughters, and sheds new light on his exploration of the family that so dominated his approach to drama.
Book your ticket now to be there for this fascinating discussion between Oliver and Abigail. Tickets are only £15 and include a free drinks reception before the talk, and the opportunity to have your copy of Shakespeare's Fathers and Daughters signed by Oliver.
We hope to see you there!
