To Be Or Not To Be: Lockdown Shakespeare

Episode 5: The Verse Doctors

November 11, 2020

In this episode, we speak to the “verse doctors”, experts on the hidden rhythms of Hamlet's famous soliloquy, who uncover how Shakespeare laid a trail of subtle clues to direct today’s actors, four centuries after his death. With Giles Taylor, Philip Bird, Sarah Case, Giles Block, Joseph Millson and Tess Dignan. The speech readings are by Emma Fielding and Simon Paisley Day. This is an amended version of an episode previously uploaded. For more information on the podcast and how you can help theatres and actors during the COVID lockdown crisis:
