SHAKE Fest Films
Hamlet (2009)

with David Tennant, Patrick Stewart, Penny Downie
Directed for stage and screen by Gregory Doran; produced by John Wyver and Sebastian Grant. An Illuminations/RSC production for BBC, WNET/13 and NHK; 183 minutes

Filmed on location for BBC Television, this screen version of the Royal Shakespeare Company's exceptional 2008 stage production features David Tennant as the Prince and Patrick Stewart as Claudius. Time Out praised "the rich texture of this stunning production... a visually arresting style... a mesmerising three hours."


A Midsummer Night's Dream (1959)

with Charles Laughton, Robert Hardy, Mary Ure, Ian Holm, Vanessa Redgrave, Albert Finney
Directed for stage by Peter Hall; directed for screen by Fletcher Markle; produced by Hubbell Robinson; 90 minutes (including introduction).

A rare screening of a historic recording made on the stage of the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. Peter Hall's glorious stage production starred the great Charles Laughton as Bottom and featured a host of emerging actors who would distinguish RSC productions in the next two decades. The black-and-white recording was made for American television but seemingly never broadcast, and includes a delightful prologue by Laughton wandering the streets of Stratford as well as a welcome to the theatre by a youthful Peter Hall.

Before the screening, John Wyver will discuss film and television adaptations of RSC productions as well as his work producing the RSC Live from Stratford-upon-Avon cinema broadcasts. John is Director, Screen Productions at the RSC and the author of the recently published Screening the Royal Shakespeare Company: A Critical History(Bloomsbury, 2019)

How to Speak Shakespeare’s Verse Workshop

Posted: Friday 29th March 2019

How to Speak Shakespeare’s Verse Workshop

TWO WORKSHOP SPECIALS WITH JENNY HALL

HOW TO SPEAK SHAKESPEARE’S VERSE

Jenny Caron Hall, daughter of RSC founder Sir Peter Hall and Hollywood actress Leslie Caron, teaches the method her father
taught her when he cast her as Miranda in The Tempest at the National Theatre. The poetic and rhetorical devices employed by Shakespeare are often ignored by readers, actors and academics. But when faithfully observed these simple tools, which have been handed down through the great theatre companies for centuries, give each new generation the skill to reveal Shakespeare with perfect clarity and give optimum power to bold new interpretations.

Sat April 27th - 4.15pm - 5.45pm
Sun April 28th - 2.30pm - 4pm
Price £6 for Teens, £10 for Adults
