To Be Or Not To Be: Lockdown Shakespeare

Episode 9: A Thousand Natural Shocks

January 6, 2021

In this episode, we visit the EGO Performance Company, actors with physical disabilities or learning difficulties, who perform and rehearse on Zoom during lockdown. The company has turned to Hamlet's famous soliloquy to explore issues in their own lives and in society; with insights ranging from the powerful and moving to the high-spirited and comical.
