Silent Shakespeare

Event Date:

An evening of nostalgia, wonderment and silliness

In the film industry’s silent era, many films of both verve and variety were made that adapted Shakespeare’s plays for popular audiences. Come and sample these rare, surviving old films in an evening that takes us an engaging tour of some fascinating, touching and entertaining Shakespearean moments from early film history. The evening will be animated by some wonderful live music, by performance interjections from live actors and by lively commentary from Judith Buchanan.
